G has some fears. They are quite irrational and driving me crazy. We made a very big mistake by watching only the first 15 mins or so of the cartoon movie Anastasia. Not only was the story inaccurate and seemed to glorify the revolution, it was extremely scary to G. So scary in fact that she has been unable to be alone for any length of time. This means she can't take her shower without me in the bathroom with her, she can't use the potty without me in there, I can't shower without her in my bathroom with me or use the potty. We can't come to my parents anymore and have me on the computer with her in the den watching TV.
To say this is annoying is a major understatement. I can't get away from her at all for any length of time particularly when she is being a difficult demanding child, as she sometimes has a tendency to be. Sometimes I need a little time to myself and can't get it. Like right now at my parents while I try to apply for jobs on line, I can't get her to give me even a few minutes without talking, begging, wallowing on me, sitting on my lap, crying or just annoying the P-diddle out of me. Seriously, I wish this post was a recording to hear her because words aren't doing it justice and this is a 24/7 issue. I am so sick of this fear and have no answer. Oh and if it wasn't the character Rasputin from Anastasia it would be some other character from a movie or made up imagination.
Do I sound like I am whinging? Sorry, sometimes it is just difficult to be so needed and not in a good way. She seems to have lost her independence to this fear.
