The last thing I want to do is underestimate the very real, emotional pain from which babies with separation anxiety suffer.
Poor 8-month-old Peony has been bursting into tears lately every time I go away. However, I work from home and spend all day, every day with her. Yes, occasionally I leave her to walk out of the room. The thing is, I always return, like, five seconds later.
As such, it seems to be a ridiculously active imagination that leads to her frequent sobs. I’m pretty sure I know what she’s thinking, because I’m intuitive like that. If only my life were as exciting as her tears of agony at my absence seem to indicate it is.
