Working woes

My son is 2. When he was little he would cry when I went away and didnt care if his dad left. He would cry hysterically when I went to leave.It broke my heart to have him cry like that. Then I had summer vacation from school and went to work and my husband stayed home with him. Now my son doesnt even bat an eye when I get my uniform on and go to work. He has even blown kisses and said bye love you! I am grateful that he no longer cries but I began to feel sad that he doesnt want/need me like he used to. My husband says that I shouldnt worry that my son wants/needs me for other things still but I still feel a little heartsick.

It is tough my son would do the same thing but just like yours he now seems to be over it and instead freaks out when 'nana' (mother in law, he stays with her for part of the day) leaves. He also seems to be more focused on Dad. My son is a few month younger than yours. It might just be the age. Just think years from now he will be yelling I hate you and slamming the bedroom door.
