toddler's anger at mom when she returns home from work
This is my first time using any blog so I hope I get it right. I babysit my 2 year old grand daughter 2 days a week. She has me all to herself. Lately when her mom comes home from work Marlena is happy to see her mom but that suddenly turns into anger at her mom. It seems as if her behavior is worse when I am in the room. I know this hurts my daughter-in-law's feelings. Then when I get ready to leave Marlena doesn't want to give me a kiss or hug good bye. My daughter-in-law thinks tha Marlena is being ungrateful. I don't take it personally when she doesn't want to say good bye since I have had the whole day to enjoy our time together and I know she loves me. I am looking for a better way to make the transition from grammy to mommy less hurtful for my daughter-in-law and more stable for my gand daughter. Thanks.
