My husband is a firefighter and is currently working at 3 different stations and going to school. He is gone A LOT---sometimes four or five days at a time. This is all my son has known. He is fine when my husband is gone, but when he is home my son gets really fussy. He always has to be right by him. If my husband walks away for anything he will keep screaming "Daddy". My husband can't take a shower, cut the grass, anything! Sometimes he is even fussy when he is with daddy. It's like he doesn't know what he wants. Then when he has to leave (or we do) my son flips out! He is normally a very happy boy. I don't know if this is b/c he is afraid of daddy leaving again or if he is so excited he doesn't know how to handle the emotions or what??? Anyone else going through anything like this? Any suggestions??? Help!! It's getting to the point where it is easier when my husband isn't home.
