Dd is a smart little girl who constantly surprises us by announcing the shape of an object that catches her eye (not triangle or circle, but semicircle or octagon, etc) or randomly explaining how composting works (something we dont do). She'll be 5 in January. She has a new habit that is driving me crazy! For example, tonight while I was getting her to bed she says matter of factly: A long time ago, when I was a baby, you sang to me to calm me down....like a real mom.
A REAL mom? I am her real mom. I still sing to her, we spend lots of time together. She keeps making statements that end in "like a real mom". What is she trying to tell me? Does she somehow feel neglected? Underloved? We play games, go on adventures, have mommy daughter time, I read to her, sing to her, dance with her. I'm not sure if I feel hurt or just confused.
