My daughter, 22 months old, is crazy about her dad and dosent want to leave him even for a minute. If he goes to another room she follows along. I am totally insivible for her and she does not bother if she hasnt seen me all day long.
Both my husband and I have too demanding jobs and he travels and is home only for the weekend. I initially thought its because I am with her and he goes away and she misses him that she dosent want to let him go out of sight when he is home. But I have travelled too and been away from her for a few weeks, she didnt even smile when I got back as if she didnt even miss me after a week of separation.
When he is at home he fully dedicates all his time to her, right from feeding to bathing, playing, everything. And I used to relax a bit after the tough week. But for the past 2 weeks we both have been at home but nothing has changed, she does not even come to me, says hi or talks to me. And is probably saying 'I love you' to him every now and then. On one hand I feel good they enjoy each other so much I feel left out. My husband dosent think it is a problem at all. But it is to me.
I know and understand people say this is just a phase and it will pass by but I cant take this anymore. Its been more than a year she has been doing this and it kills me a little everytime she pushes me away. It has gotten me so depressed that I am losing interest in her and life altogether. Sometimes I feel I should not talk to her so she may want to come back to me but I cant do that. I have tried many ways of dealing with this in the past year but nothing has worked so far - I tried being as much fun as he is, tried talking to her like he does, tried letting her do what she wishes to do (he spoils her royally).
Can anyone please suggest a way to keep my mental balance. I am losing it now.
