Reply to Jealous of grandmas (caregivers)
Anonymous

Totally understand! I’m like this too... and what’s worse is that my son cries when I take him home because he doesn’t want to leave grandma’s. At first (and occasionally still) I was jealous of their time spent together and of his preference towards her... but then I think about how much I appreciate that he loves her so much and feels safe n connected with her.. how awesome is that! (But yes, it still stings... just gotta remember that you’re a mom now and your feelings don’t matter -just kidding!) Good luck! Kids go through phases so frequently.. soon he’ll prefer you and cry every time you leave.
