Pay attention Mum!

One of our new objectives this week is getting Bright Eyes to understand that just because someone is in the same room or close by, they may not be available for communication.

We have a long way to go.

He spends his day calling "Mum, Mum" from wherever he is, expecting me to drop everything and come running. He still has that two year old belief that Mummy is 'on tap' and is always available.

If I say, "Not yet" or "later" he yells louder and groans and moans. Apart from inflicting pain, I'm not sure how we're going to teach this one!
