Doesn't Want To Be Alone

Over the past month or so Alyce has developed a new fear.  She is afraid of being alone.  Mom and I make her go into quiet time every day.  It is to give both her and us a break.  It only lasts 2 - 2.5 hours but lately Alyce has been resistant to go.  She is fighting going in her room because she says she doesn't want to be alone.  Mom and I tell her that she isn't alone and that we are close by if she needs us but that doesn't carry much weight.

I'm not exactly sure if she is truly afraid of being alone of if she is just using another trick in the book to try and get out of quiet time.  If she is faking then perhaps she should pursue an acting career as she is very convincing.  We just had a parent teacher conference (more on that soon) and her teacher said that Alyce has picked up crying in class if she becomes frustrated with something or if they want her to do something she doesn't know how to do like playing basketball.  When Alyce starts to cry she says that she misses Mommy and also she says that Mommy misses her.

I'm hoping that this is just a stage and that new emotions are opening up to Alyce.  Perhaps she doesn't quite know how to handle them yet and is acting out in a fashion that is working for her e.g. crying.
