Separation Anxiety

I've mentioned before that my boy is like a super glue. He sticks to me wherever I go. For example....

Separation Anxiety at age 2
He cries whenever I am out of sight and clings to me when I am in sight.

Separation Anxiety at age 4
He shouts out to me when I leave the room. "Mummy, where are you going? Are you going downstairs/upstairs? Will you be back soon? I want to go with you."

During mealtimes or playtime, he pushes the chair he is sitting on so that the chair is as close to mine as possible just so he can sit as near to me as possible.

During bedtime, he will put a hand on my face or drag my hand to put over his body. If I am sleeping on the mattress next to his bed, he will let his hand hang down and request that I hold his hand. Even in the middle of the night, I will suddenly find a small hand looking for mine requesting to be held while sleeping. Either that, or I will suddenly hear a small, sleepy voice saying "Mommy, hold hands."

I wonder when will Separation Anxiety end? lol.


  1. Oh, thank goodness..finally I'm blogging now!
    I think the separation anxiety would end if your boy get his own woman ... and youl'll be miss to hold his arms :)
    Btw, thank you MG for your last comment that really had made me more CONFUSED..haha...

  2. I would say enjoy it while it lasts. Ha ha ha. I know it can sometimes be worrying but I guess at this age, giving him the security is important. I am sure, soon, he will be happy on his own.

  3. i dont hv the answer for u coz i am still wondering myself too...

  4. wen,
    Hahaha. Lets see how long it lasts then. :)

  5. My boy not only ask for my hand but in the middle of the night, I find that he is next to me and the baby is in the next bed. Can you imagine I groggily wake up in the middle of the night trying to give nen-nen to the wrong son????? Hahahaha. Could this be a middle child syndrome?

  6. lian,
    Just don't groggily wake up and offer nen-nen to the biggest kid of all. Muahahahaha.

  7. yes i join the chorus..enjoy it while it lasts. soon u will b wondering where he is as he grows up to b a person in his own right. then really headache. :)

  8. soooon.. sooon...Enjoy while you still can.

    Zara is slowing letting me go, and I kind of miss her 'clingy' times.
