Laura's Dad has always spent lots of time with her and been active in her life. Three weeks ago he left us to go live with his new gf and her daughter and now only comes to the house when he needs something, holds her for 2 minutes and hands her back. He only calls to ask if he got mail, doesn't ask how she's doing or anything else.
This is killing Laura. If I try to walk out of the room she gives this heartbreaking cry. She isn't sleeping well, she goes to bed WAY too late and it's pretty damn hard to get her down at all. She has meltdowns all day and just hasn't been herself. I have NO idea what to do for her. None at all. I've been patient and giving lots of cuddles, love, and attention but I'm stressed and trying not to fall apart too so I am kind of hitting the end of my rope. Any advice on how to make this easier on either Laura or myself, or both, I would totally appreciate it.
On a different note, I took this picture last night and it makes me laugh every time I see it =]
