So, we got SO's daughter back a week ago and things are so....different. She cries about EVERYthing. If SO asks her to sit on the potty, put her shoes on, change into her jammies, eat her food or whenever he tells her no...she sticks out her bottom lip and pouts or else bursts into tears and runs into her room and cries for 10 minutes. Unless he is being nice and playing with her, she is either pouting or crying. She only talks in a pouty or whiny voice now when asking for things like she is scared or like if she doesn't get the answer she wants, she will bring hell down on him.
With me.....it is even worse. I ask her to do ANYthing, she cries and screams for her daddy. I wake her up in the morning to get her dressed, she sees me and bursts into tears and won't stop crying and whining until her dad shows up. I make dinner and she won't eat it unless her dad makes it. I go to play toys with her and she cries and won't play with me and just screams for her dad. She acts like she is terrified of me. The other day I was helping SO pick out clothes for her and she would just hide behind his legs. He told her to go to me to get dressed and left the room so she couldn't hide and it was the end of the world for her.
WHAT HAPPENED?! I used to have so much fun with this little girl. We had frustrating moments like with any 2 year olds but otherwise we would play, make food together, read books together, go to the park together and have fun. She wants nothing to do with me anymore and I don't know what I did. =( This little girl used to be happy all the time...she wouldn't really pout. She would have her tantrums but not like this all the time. Her mom always claimed that she would make her hate us....what if she did? Will I ever get my SO's daughter to like me again? Or is this just an adjustment phase??
