my ex and i have had share custody of him since he was 1 and it's been the same routine for nearly 5 yrs. his father was going though a tough time recently and asked if my husband and i wouldn't mind keeping our son for his parenting time for awhile until he got back on his feet. well... that was 8 months ago. now the issue is my ex finally picked up our son for his first parenting time in 7 months, and now that my son is back with my husband and i he cry's that he wants his father; every time he gets into trouble, gets a time out, has to take a nap, or go to bed for the night. now he never once had a problem or cried out for his father the entire 7 months that he was with us. we don't know what to do. we've tried talking to him about it, taking him on special trips and doing special things with him but even after an awesome day he still goes back to the same thing. balling his eyes out and the attitude is a complete change... not sure if it's just being away for such along time or if something else is going on... please help opinions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

he saw his father for 2 weeks. and has been back with my husband and me for 2 weeks. it's back to our normal routine. but it's just started back up again.
