"Mommy can't have daddy"

Today, for example, she screamed when I tried to lay down next to her and my husband for a nap (we frequently have family naps). She told me daddy is hers.

She's three years old and we just moved back into a house together (3 weeks ago) with him after two years of living apart, but frequently seeing him.

She used to get a thrill every time we kissed or hugged up until a few days ago. She would even tell us to hug each other. What could be causing the sudden change?

She is not used to living all together again. It is quite an adjustment.

Well, this is quite normal even for house holds that have stayed in tact. Don't get mad at her, don't encourage it by thinking it is cute or saying it is. Show affection regularly. Let her see a healthy relationship between all of you. She just is looking for that extra attention from daddy, which is understandable.
