This really makes me feel sad! He even justifies that I don't have to go to work since he will not buy toys...=(

This happened with my older son after his dad started working a camp job. He was working away 2 weeks and home one week, and had previously been home every night.  I think my son thought I would go away for a long time too(2 weeks is for ever to a little guy).  It was a very hard time, he usually had to be peeled off me, screaming at the top of his lungs by his babysitter (who was a family member well known to him), or his dad when he was home.  I just did my best to reassure him that I would be home in a little while, and then left, whether he was crying still or not.  It broke my heart.  But after a little while it stopped.  But do your best to just reassure him, and back it up by showing himwhn you come home.

Mine did that for a while too but you just have to stay strong and not show him that you feel sorry for him in any way. He will get over it.

Good luck
