My daughter whom is 3 is literally attached to my mother lately! We moved a couple of weeks next door to my parents (thats right they own sevearl apartment complexs so myself, plus two sisters & my parents all live in the complex) & my daughter seriously cant get enough of my mother!
When we are at their apartment she is literally attached to her & wont share my mother with the other kids! I cant believe that I have to theatern her with time out for not sharing the grandmother lol Last night we went over to say good night as we do some nights of the week & she refused to leave it was 8:30pm at night when I decided to pull her off of my mother & carry through the parking lot to our apartment! My sister said she couldnt believe the screaming she heard my child make as we walked past her place!
I'm fine with her being all attached but today or just now I wanted to paint easter eggs with her. My daughter who usually loves to do crafts did a hack job on those eggs & was done in less then 5minutes. She then wanted to eat some lunch & now is relaxing from playing outside & with my mother all morning =( I know its a stage being this obsessed with her grandmother but still.
Like I said we just moved a couple of weeks ago before we were 3hours away from here. I have always been the center of my daughters world & a stay at home mom with her. I feel like I'm totally second in her eyes (which again is fine b/c I know I am her mom & I want her to be close to my mom too) but I still feel a bit left out =( She will go to my moms place take my mom into the playroom then tell me I'm not allowed & slam the door, any time we are around my mom she goes to her for everything just walks right past me =(
Alright rant is over haha she will get over this & I will get used to it! Just been 3 years of me being her everything & suddenly I feel like I'm not so much anymore. Its good though for her to have the bonds she does with all of her family that is why we moved here to be closer & make those bonds stronger so I shouldnt complain right!?

Limit the time they spend together a little so she knows she can't throw a fit and get her way all of the time. Being close is wonderful but throwing tantrums is probably not a good thing and its easier to break habits when they first form then to wait until it is out of control. GL

I can see why you feel left out, I would also I think. However slamming the door and being rude and disrespectful would absolutely not be tolerated. I agree, grandma is like a new toy, it will fade.
