DS has always been a little bit of a momma's boy, but it was never too bad. Just given the option of me or almost anyone else he would choose me. But the past week he has been extremely clingy! Always saying "momma don't leave me": at bedtime, when I drop him off at DC, etc. He follows me into every room I go to, wants to know where I'm going and when I'll be back (for instance when I go to the basement to do laundry). As soon as I get home from work he wants to be picked up and not put down AT ALL.
Is this just a 3YO phase? DH thinks that DS is doing this because he knows we are having a baby, but I don't think so.
(side note: DS constantly talks about the "baby in momma's belly". He was crawling all over me the other night and making me nauseous, so I told him he had to sit still, no mention of my belly at all. And DS looks me in the eyes and says "I don't want to hurt the baby". We don't talk about it with DS much but we told him once and he latched onto it. Is that normal for a 3YO?)
