Shadow

From Wednesday Mom – Janelle:
Today is Groundhog Day, and with the frightful weather out there we are all hoping Punxsutawney Phil does NOT see his shadow.  Through all the ice and snow how could he, right?  I live in the Deep South and am already sick of the cold weather.  I can’t even imagine living any further north.  My newly southern blood just couldn’t handle it.

Recently, Jack has been my shadow.  He went from having to do everything by himself to all of a sudden having me right by his side helping him do a task.  We met a bunch of friends at the park last weekend and he needed me there with him to play with his friends and run around.  These are kids he plays with at school every day and knows them very well. Also, he doesn’t like his bed and has had a few accidents during night.  He also has been hesitant about going to school in the morning.

My husband has been out of town for the last ten days fulfilling work duties.  Perhaps Jack’s regression is a result of not having his daddy around.  He did talk about how much he missed daddy and how he wanted to wrestle with him (something mommy doesn’t do quite as well).

Daddy has been gone A LOT during Jack’s 3 ½ years.  Fortunately, Daddy has been home for the last year enjoying his “shore” tour with his family.  I think Jack has reached the age where he can pick up on things that are different or out of the ordinary.  Has anyone else experienced this with their children?

Now that Daddy has returned home, I’m anxious to see if Jack will go back to his independent ways or regress for awhile.  For the sake of my sanity, I’m hoping he feels more secure with his family reunited again.  I just want to see that sweet smile like I usually see every day.

    I am having the same things with Carson as you are with Jack. Especially the last few weeks we have been having a lot more accidents during the day and even at night. He has been wanting me to be there in the bathroom with him as well. He always wants to wrestle!! That is the one thing he misses the most about not having Daddy around to wrestle with. It must be a boy thing!! 🙂
    Hoping that Jack is doing better now that Daddy is back home.
