Child acting like a baby at times?

Do any of you have a problem with your child wanting to convert back into a baby??? At times she wants me to feed her, she is sucking on her fingers which she has never done, and at times she is potty trained she will go and pee pee in the bathroom floor and say mommy I peed n the floor I need a diaper. What should I do? I know its not a big deal I just dont want her to act like this she is my big girl:)

I think it's hard being a kid. Going from having soft and loving Mommy do everything for them to having to grow up and learn how to do things for themselves. I think "growing pains" applies to them emotionally, as well as physically. My son is 3 and he's going through a phase right now where the only way he will eat is if I feed him. He's been feeding himself with a fork or spoon since he was around 18 months old, so it's not that he doesn't know how. I do it for him when he asks because I think sometimes they just need us and miss being babied a little. I don't know if it's the same with the potty training issues you're having, because my son isn't potty trained yet. But I imagine the same could apply there. Maybe she's just feeling emotional from growing up and being a big girl, but misses the days when you would change her diaper. I definitely think not making a big deal out of her peeing on the floor is a good thing. Patience, lots and lots of patience Momma!
