: : I was hoping someone could give me some advice on what to do with my 10mth old daughter. She wants me and only me. Everywhere I go there she is pulling on my pant
: : leg.and cries and cries until I pick her up.and I know that is where my problem began. I have two other daughters and they as well require alot of attention.So do you think I should just ignore her and just get up
: : and walk away from her?? I get frustrated becuase I really dont want to leave her crying but I need to get things done around the house( Laundry,dishes.)you know how it is. I am a SAHM my 2 older girls are 8 and 5.
: : any suggestions would be great.Thanks
: : in advance.

: HI, isn't it nice that someone needs you and wants you and loves you so much? She won't be young for long, and the laundry can wait until she naps, enjoy every single moment you have with her, before too long she won't want to be with her parents. I am a full time working mom, I see my son about 3 hours a day when I work. I blinked and it was gone. My one regret is that I have to work so much and don't get to be with him more. The good thing is it makes me appreciate every second taht I do have with him. I wish I could stay home. Anyway, that's an opionion from the opposite side.. Good luck and take care and cherish every wonderful moment each of your children gives. Stay warm, and keep smiling--------------------------Jamie

My little boy was very clingy at 10mths but I think alot it was because I breast fed him. He's 2 now and he is still clingy, but I don't mind. I think it is great to be needed and loved.If you want to get stuff done around the house you are going to have to let your little girl help. Even if it is playing with a pan. Good Luck! Jennifer
