Sofia and her Anatomy Book

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Funny parenting memory...

We were in bookstore and had bought Sofia an Eyewitness Anatomy book. There were real photos of kids with little faded in areas with illustrations of veins, organs, and bones. We thought it would be good for her to visualize what was on the inside, and under her skin. Right after my mother purchased it for her, excited, she snatched it from her hand, took it over to the stairs at the BMV, sat down and started to look at the pictures. 

I was browsing around still, and then I hear her voice. 

"Mommy... I'm scared."

Not really the desired effect. 
She couldn't look at the book for a week without someone sitting with her to look at it.
