Strangled by an invisible umbilical cord...

Why is it that when I am longing for their love and attention, they are in the midst of an independence spurt? They do not crave my affections or company, but want only to do their "own thing" for a while...

Why is it that when they are incredibly needy and in the midst of regressing a bit, I cannot retreat far enough away? Their invisible umbilical cords seem to coil and tighten about my neck. Slowing my air and freedom to the point that I must physically push away from the sticky little hands which grope for me...

This is so true! If you find an answer, I'd love to know. My hope is that it teaches us to let them be independent when they need it and pushes us when we need it. Hopefully. :) Just found your blog. Thanks for the smiles!

I think this falls under the larger Murphy's Law umbrella.
