Do you ever hope for a good chat with your friend on a play date, and end up with your child clinging to you like glue, interrupting every two seconds? You’re not alone!
You want some adult company and conversation, but then… uggggh. Your child wants to sit on your lap and play with your hair. Or is suddenly starving and needs food (even though they ate just before you came out). Or they whine that something is wrong. Or they interrupt every time you try to speak. Or maybe they start thumping you. Pretty soon, it’s time to go home. You’ve barely chatted to your friend. You begin to wonder, what’s wrong? Why can’t my child just run off and play?
