Schizpophrenia


I used to babysit my nephew Zac. At that time there was nothing more in life he wanted that to pretend he was Rudolph and I was Santa. I can't tell you how many Rudolph noses I painted on him with a red marker and how many times I galloped around the living room saying, "Okay Rudolph, shine up your nose!" while we flew around in our imaginary sleigh. I only babysat and I often felt so sorry for my sister who I know was sick, sick, sick of playing that day after day. Well, now I have my own four year old.

What is it about this age? Afton can't be content with me being just mom! I already told you about my new life as Phantom of the Opera. Now she wants me to be the goblin king from Labrynth. If I dare address her as anyone but "Sara" or "Christine" she says...."MOM! You are not my mom you are the Goblin King!" I feel slightly schitzo. I'm a little worried about this obsession she has with bad boys...

Well, I can certainly relate to your daughter's obsession with the Phantom. I went to see it 12 times in the theater in 14 days. I only quit because my then 2 year old son started singing along and people would get annoyd. David Bowie.... notsomuch, but I hear from others that he is quite handsome... I just don't see it. Sorry I can't be more helpful. What can I say? :)

Maybe you could convince her that Evan is the goblin king??? I bet you are best for the part though...even if you don't look a bit like him.

I like Julie's idea. It can be a challenge when in the middle of Walmart my daughter says, "No, mom I am the mom and you are the baby." She is not content until I start acting like the baby. She will say, "Ok, mom, start acting like the baby." Like I said, a bit of a challenge in Walmart or public period. Good luck to you! I guess it's just something that keeps us youthful!!
