I have a 16 month old son who has been a momma's boy all his life...well up to now that is. Recently he has been clinging to EVERYONE and not wanting to come back to me. And by everyone I mean complete strangers! I took him to the mall today to play and he ran up to a man about my dad's age (45-50) and wanted the man to hold him and walk him around. The guy was really nice so he carried my son around (as I followed of course) and let him play a little bit. But when it was time to go, my son wouldn't come to me and was crying for this stranger to keep holding him! The same thing happened at my fiance's office the other day. The only thing I can think of is that my son thinks these men are my dad...who he has a really strong bond with. Regardless though, its really hurting my feelings. I am not mean to my son at all. I play with him, feed him, take care of him, love him, etc. etc.! I've not done anything that would merit such behavior. I am a SAHM too. Why is he doing this?
