Sticky Chewy Choco-LELE

I wonder when Lele's separation anxiety will fade (is it even that?)...
At home he mostly wants me even though his yeye, nainai and shushu (uncle) are always there. It's sweet to be wanted by my dearest babe, but can be a tad irritating esp when I wanted to get some chores done. I hate to do chores at night esp my most hated (hand)washing n ironing. Thankfully, these 2 aren't daily chores! Whenever there is some (hand)washing or ironing that simply needs to be done, I always try to squeeze in some daytime to finish them. Now with such a stickychewychocolele who will fuss even if I'm out of sight for a while, it is so difficult to accomplish even abit of chores time. Even me-time seems out of the question...

SIGH....

But when we are at other places, he seemed perfectly fine. He'll gladly interact with gorgor or jiejie and other people. I know part of the reason could be because he knew I was nearby hence felt safe to socialise.

BUT shouldn't he feel even SAFER at home? Since I am in the house and he knows it. Surely the company of yeye, nainai and shushu beats that of total strangers... right?

Hmmm...

Hmm...I'm not only his playmate I think! But nowadays the situation at home seemed improved. He will allow me space to do chores and play with his uncle without crying for me. Dunno whether it was because I explained to him what I would be doing or because he is growing out of the SA...
