I am a single, sahm (no, not on welfare), and I have an 18 month old daughter. Lately, she has become very clingy. She will tug at me to go with her wherever she goes. If I walk away from her, she will grab me and drag me back to where she is.
At first, it was cute and flattering, but now it's just annoying. I can't get anything done, because she's constantly wanting me to be right next to her. I try to spend one on one time with her as much as possible, but I need to do dishes, prepare meals, go to the bathroom, etc too! I try not to, but I find myself snapping at her because I just need some breathing room!
Does anyone have any idea why she is doing this, and/or how to handle this?
