Finally! Here I am with a new Tuesday Topic! Time on the computer has been limited lately and I feel that I cannot possibly justify writing about parenting children with hurting hearts if I am neglecting my own in order to blog. I hope you will bear with me as I do my best to be a good mommy.
A reader emailed me recently with this question:
I’ve read lots of books about getting the child to attach; that’s not a problem here. We picked up our son 3 months ago. He was 11 months, and he seems to have a very healthy attachment. My problem is I don’t feel all that attached to him yet. I miss my two older kids, I mourn the breastfeeding relationship I don’t have with him, his whining just grates on me, etc. I’m not finding any resources to help me figure this out. My husband does not seem to have the same issues. It seems like the topic nobody ever discusses.
Let’s put our collective wisdom together and share our thoughts. I’ll hold your comments until next Tuesday, May 25th, or possibly Wednesday, and share them all at once. We have therapy appointments in Seattle and will be on the road Sunday and Monday, so we’ll see how Tuesday goes.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences.
