What is up with that? On and off for weeks now, the kid has been melting down if it's not Mommy who:
- gives her a bath
- puts her to bed
- opens the applesauce
- changes the channel
- helps build a block tower
- reads a book
- does any damn thing that involves the kid.
Since she was sick a couple of weeks ago (and, in fact, right now, at my in-laws', which is why I'm writing this), if the kid decided she wanted Mommy and Mommy didn't appear instantly, she would start the meltdown. "Where's Mommy?" "In the bathroom." Where's Mommy????" "In the kitchen." "Where's MOMMY????" "On the other side of the window, right there." Where's Mommy!??!!" Like that.
So far, I try to stay focused on helping my wife, distracting the kid long enough for her to go to the bathroom, or so that she can sleep in a little, but at some point, a guy's gotta wonder what's up. And then he's likely to post about it on his blog.
