Separation Anxiety

When he started pre-school last September, I am the last mother who will leave the place as he wont go in without me. I need to stay a bit for longer to make him at ease in staying there. This goes a bit long. Two weeks me thinks.

He slowly adjusted to preschool life and can now go without being tantrumy. The waiting for the door to open is already a pre-preschool event as he would play with the other kids waiting by the door too. I am so happy on how he is so at ease with everyone. In preschool there is no grouping yet. He do havea best friend already.

Also, before with his Dad. He would cry bucket of tears before he can go to work. 2 set of buckets as his Dad have 2 jobs. Before every going to work it became a ritual for us that he doesnt want his Dad to go to work.

Everything has changed now too with that. He just needs to know if Daddy is going and he will just say 'Bye Daddy' or 'See you later'. No more tears.

All this nonmore crying for Mommy or Daddy made me a bit sad. True he is growing up and this is one of the signs of that but deep inside me I still want him to ache for my presence.

I am having separation anxiety haha!

But as a parent I have to let him go and grow and experience and be with other people. Because it is inevitable.

At this rate that he is growing I am very very vigilant of the time. I have to record everything in my head. I dont want to miss a thing because I know that before I know it, he will go to proper school and we will have less and less and less time together.

    You are so right that it’s not just them that suffer from separation anxiety, but us too! But, as you say, it is inevitable that they will grow up and need us less, sad for us but exactly as it should be for them x Thanks so much for linking to #ThePrompt x

    I found letting go of my youngest the hardest as I knew that she would be my last ever baby. She is 6 now and in full time school and very independent – I sometimes wish for the times that she would lay on me for hours wanting to be so close to me but then I remember how wonderful it is that she is so happy and confident and I savour the rare times that she does sit and cuddle me. #ThePrompt

    How lovely to see that your little one is growing more confident and less attached to the two of you. True, we sometimes suffer from separation anxiety ourselves as parents πŸ™‚ I cried so much on my first day back at work when I left my little man with our childminder (he had a great time, no tears for him!). Beautiful shot, he seems so engrossed in his ‘guitar playing’. Mel #PoCoLo

    They do grow up so quickly. I can’t believe that Boo will be off to school in September and I’ll miss her terribly. To be honest, though, she has never had separation anxiety, so I’ve not experienced the crying as she missed me – she just runs off and plays at the first opportunity!

    My 3-year-old still does that too sometimes… cries when her dad goes to work. Love that photo with your son strumming the guitar. He really looks as if he’s playing a tune! πŸ˜‰ #PoCoLo.

    My youngest was really not bothered at all about me leaving him – the other 3 were so it was a bit of a shock!

    Ahhhh it’s bitter sweet isn’t it. Fab that he’s growing up to be a wonderful little man, but definitely not a baby anymore. At least you get to record all the precious moments here πŸ™‚ #ThePrompt

    Ah he’s so cute playing that guitar Merlinda! It *is* inevitable though and, after years of tears from JJ at nursery drop off I am just so happy to see him run off to pre-school happily and I really cross my fingers that he will be the same with big school in September, but I will miss him, that is almost certainly inevitable! #ThePrompt

    Separation anxiety – I think I know it very well. Know what, the day I left my girl in the daycare for the first time, I felt as if I am not living my life at all… Everything back home turned out to be strange to me with a missing toddler… lol!

    VaiChin @Rambling Through Parenthood: Oh, I know exactly how you feel! I think us Mothers suffer more from separation anxiety than do our little ones! #theprompt

    It is sad sometimes when they don’t seem to need you as much anymore. Lovely to see them grow up and flourish as happy little people, but a little sad that it is all happening so quickly.
    You have a little cutie there!

    I hate the thought of leaving my twins. I don’t know who will suffer from separation anxiety more, me or them! Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky

    I think it is harder for the parents than the children a lot of the time! When Grace started school, I cried and she didn’t! I love the photo of him with the guitar πŸ™‚ Thank you for linking to PoCoLo πŸ™‚ x

    You’re right, they do grow up so very quickly but children are very adaptable and probably more flexible that we give them credit for! You should be proud that you’re efforts are making your boy a strong, confident person which is ultimately what we all want for our children. But separation anxiety is something we all go through, even if we don’t all talk about it! Lovely post #ThePrompt
