Need advice

My two year daughter throws a fit every time her father comes to get her. She is excited to see him but doesn't want to leave with him. Is this normal ? Should I make her go? It breaks my heart to see her like this.

My question is how does he react when she cries about not wanting to go? If he's calm and tries to comfort her then at least thats a sign he's attentive to her needs and her crying isnt a result of not feeling comfortable with him. If hes angry about it and not trying to make the transition easier for her then chances are he's not attentive to her needs and therefore she senses that....and doesnt want to go. Also how do you and he get along? If there is any tension between the two of you around her she can sense that. She's 2 but trust me, 2 yr olds are smarter than we think.
