Yes. I do look at it as my time with her. I am her main caregiver. I don’t want her spending time with anyone else.
But yes, it is especially her father given that he walked out on us.
I don’t even like her going to day-care but it’s a necessity because I choose to work. I don’t want her to stop breastfeeding and I’m dreading when she goes off to school.
There is a part of me that wonders if I have what I’ve heard people describe as a bit of co-dependency with her. I get very affected by her moods etc.
