When hubby is at work my little one and I are attached at the hip all day. Playing, giggling, etc. He's very easy going. He has periods where he plays with his toys alone while I clean or cook, etc.

When hubby gets home he wants daddy constantly. He gets whiney and clingy and doesn't act like the easy going baby he is the rest of the day. Its so weird.

Anyone else have this issue?? Any ideas on how to handle it?

Dominic favors me most of the time. He gets excited when daddy gets home, or plays with him etc but if he needs anything it's all on me.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

Kynslee is usually pretty good about wanting both of us. There are times though, especially if she's really tired that she'll only want mama but mostly it's a mixture of both. Of course I'm home during the day with her so it's only me. Yet when Sam first comes home (if she's not napping) it's all about dada for the first bit and then whoever will pay the little drama the most attention at a given moment - LOL! When Sam's off work she will go to / ask for either one of us

I think if Joshua had the choice he would like to be super glued to me. He does get excited when hubby gets home but other than that he comes to me for everything.

Zoe is attached to me during the day but wont let DH go when he gets in from work. She is getting better though so maybe just a faze that they grow out of.
