There is a new fantastic way I have found to completely traumatize my kid. I found it by accident, since I NEVER would have seen it as something that would create such an overblown and emotional reaction and I really try not to do it but she is traumatized by it at least a few times every day.
This is a kid who would pull a chair up to the kitchen sink at her grandma's house and come away looking like she was thrown in a pool. She never wiped her own hands and used to think it was hilarious to run up to me with her wet hands and get her hand prints on me.
Tonight before dinner, her father went in to "help her" wash her hands (because suddenly she is afraid to do it herself) and she got a DROP of water on her shirt. She cried and cried and cried and cried. She cried like someone ran over her puppy, it was so pathetic. She cried some more, and when I asked her to show me where the water got, she couldn't. Because her tears had gotten her shirt ALL wet. Needless to say, we had to change that shirt.
Is this something kids go through or is this just another obvious sign that my kid is going to be insane?
