It's Happening Again

My Dearest Samantha,

Separation Anxiety is overrated.  Seriously.  Ask your big sis - she gave it a shot about this time last year and really, it's not that important of a developmental milestone.  I *know* you're learning that Momma's the best and all and I will try to remember that that's really what you're trying to communicate when you SCREECH AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS next time I leave the room.  You're not trying to make my life miserable and you're not a poorly-adjusted-weirdo-kid.  This is normal.  It happens.  And it will be over soon. 

Can you try to make it really soon?  REALLY?  I mean, I'll love you no matter what... but the screeching is not the most endearing noise you've ever made. 

All my love,


  1. oh, Sammy-Whammy! your momma doesn't love separation anxiety much - - and your grammas are going to want to spend time with you next month and give your momma a break! love and big hugs!!

  2. Yes I remember that separation anxiety thing...since I was the one babysitting! :)

  3. Caitlin... you (and every other person who has/will put up with my kids when they're going through this) are a saint.
