Hi all. My duaghter's 2 years old and for the majority of her life, I've been her main carer. Her dad works full-time and, ever since I went back to work when she was 7 months old, I've worked part-time. We're both around in the morning, I take her to her Childminder before I go to work, I pick her up from her Childminder and am (more often than not) the 1 that is with her until she goes to bed at 7, unless her daddy finishes early (which is a rareity). The thing is, when her daddy is about, she won't let him do stuff like put her to bed, hug her or play; it has to be me, or she screams and pushes him away.
She has spent nights with her grandma most weekends since she was a few months old and has been in Childcare since I went back to work, so is used to being away from me.
I love her and love spending time with her, but it's just getting a bit much for me when all I want is some "me" time and for her and her daddy to "get along".
Anyone able to give any suggestions, please?
