  • For my boys, it was. No one was better than mom, not even dad was good enough. If you can, try to leave him with a trusted friend maybe once a week for an hour or so, and work up from there. This will pass, but it takes time.

  • Very normal, keep in mind that soon enough he will want nothing to do with you, so enjoy your popularity while is here.
