She is my first child from my previous marriage.
We had such a close special bond but it started feeling different when she started being more independent.
This does not feel normal, it feels like a wall is up, even the hugging feels awkward for her and I.
I am finding it hard to even have a small conversation with her.
When the younger 2 kids go to bed before he at times, (when I want one on one with her than it feels normal)
But when my 5 year old son and 17 month old daughter is up it feels odd and disconnected.
I really would love to know how to connect with her.
I am the mom that stays home while my fiancé works 2000 miles away 21 days on 5 full days off.
no friends or family support around.
The only person I talk to is my mother
( not saying any of this to feel sorry for myself just trying to paint the picture for this particular situation.
