Why doesn't my 2 yr old son like me?

Three days before my son turned one, I had to travel to Atlanta to start a new position with my company. My husband and children stayed in Texas for almost three months before they all moved here with me. In that short span of time, my toddler began to gravitate to his father over me. Now, when he is upset, sick or even happy, he prefers to be with my husband instead of me. I don't know what to do. I have tried over and over again to get him to spend one-on-one time with me but, to no avail. Have I completely lost that opportunity?

Your his mum and you will always be the special person in his life..just relax and try to give it time. Your child is most likely confussed at your depature and only had dad while you were away so he feels closer to him at the moment. The relationship will strenghten again just let it happen over time !
