the cold shoulder

has anyone had experience with this. Our DS (18mths) is shipped off to his grandma's a day each week (around 10am to 6pm) so DW can carry out the jobs she needs to get done and all the things she can't do while DS is around (very clingy).

When I go to pick him up, he barely looks at me. When I get him home, he won't so much as acknowledge DW and gives me and her the cold shoulder all night.

Anyone had the same thing? It's very strange. I would have thought he would be glad to see us

Sounds like he is trying to punish you daddycool for leaving him. Assuming he is happy with Grandma while you are actually not there I wouldn't worry about it.

Oooh, big sympathies. yes, I have experienced this - and I think there will be a big queue of people saying the same thing on this thread.
I think it is their way of showing that they are angry with you - but they do get over it, honest, and seem not to hold it against you.
Hope it wears off quickly. It's really gut wrenching, isn't it?

he's certainly happy with his grandma. He just seems to take the huff with us for leaving him.

yep he's trying to 'punish' you. Don't worry it will pass.

dd is only 8 months but has started doing this. I go to collect her from nursery and I walk into the room and she is happily playing away. She turns round, spots me and bursts into tears. Sounds like the 18 mo equivilant from your DS.
