It has been much tougher than I thought to keep up with this, but I'll get the hang of it and now that I'm back at work, I'm hoping to get a chance to jot some funny moments down every now and then.
So the topic of this post is Ava's fears. I'm really starting to worry about my little girl because she is afraid of SO MANY odd things!
1.) Random noises...which include the potty timer (like a kitchen timer) and the buzzer at her Daddy's basketball games. The buzzer terrifies her! It's really sad the way she jumps and grabs hold of you when she hears it. I mean it is very loud and happens very frequently at a basketball game, but I mean she cries and asks to go bye bye and everything! So, needless to say, last Saturday was her last game until we go down to Atlanta. I just can't put her through it anymore. After being traumatized at the game on Saturday, she told me repeatedly "I don't like Daddy's game, it scares me." So sad :-( And last night as I was leaving to go to a game, she got sad and said "Mommie, I wanna go with you" and I said, "Well, I'm going to Daddy's game and you don't like Daddy's game." She said..."Bye Bye Mommie!"
2.) Ella in her Wizard of Oz Lion costume. Somehow, even though she knows it's Ella, she is very scared.
3.) Things floating in the bathtub. At first it was the white Dove liquid soap that happens to float in the tub then she saw a piece of her hair and that really freaked her out too. In both cases she literally started crying and yellling "HOLD YOU!" (which is what she says when she wants to be picked up) and tried jumping out of the tub. Whew.....
4.) Any little things on the ground that in any way resembles a bug!
It's so sad, I'm going to start praying for her to be less fearful because at this rate, she is going to have a really hard time :-(
