Ok so, I am a stay at home mom and so I watch and take care of my son all day everyday. And well here's the thing, whenever I go to make myself something to eat after I feed my son and make sure he's all good and happy so that way I can eat in peace he will see me bring the food out reach out for it as though he's thinks it's for him (by the way he does this with everything) he thinks its for him and when he see's me take it for myself and eat it he right away gets upset and starts throwing a tantrum and it's like if i just ignore him and let him throw his tantrum he wont stop he'll get worse and cry even harder, and it's so darn annoying because I just want to eat!
I've tried everything to keep him occupied while i eat or give him his most favorite toys to play with and nothing works. He always see's me and throws a fit.
Not only that but also I have a hard time throughout the day walking back and forth doing housework. This is what happens, I set him in his high chair with as many toys that will fit on the tray for him to play with I also make sure he's well fed and changed and all that, and so I'll start cleaning and doing things and everytime I walk past him he reaches out for me and wants me to pick him up.......and then before I know it like 5 minutes later he is completely freaking out everytime I go out of his sight, sometimes even if I go more than 5 feet away from him (no exaggeration) he will completely freak out and wont stop and cry harder and harder and wont stop for nothing.
It's insane! And me and my husband seriously sometimes walk on eggshells, we are always trying to sneak away from him (the baby) without him noticing, like one of us will distract him while one of us goes and sneaks off and runs to the bathroom or goes into another room.
But it's just rididculous!! I am seriously completely tired of our son running usin this way, I've been doing this for 5-6 months now, the first 4 months he didn't really do it! ALL I WANNA DO IS JUST BE ABLE TO WALK AWAY WITH OUT HIM FREAKING OUT THINKING I'M LEAVING HIM FOREVER OR SOMETHING. I mean I can hardly do anything anymore, I've been falling behind on the housework, the living room and bedrooms are a huge mess. The bathrooms need cleaned. I dont get to shower every often (yes i know what you're thinking: "ewwwww") lol.
I know some of you will just say "Welcom to motherhood!" .......Lol But trust me i've already been welcomed. This is just something I truely want and need advice and help on.
Ok so I'm writing a novel now! Uggh!
Well seriously though I really really need advice as to what to do! Please Moms help me! :)
