She is theatrical and emotional like her mother. She is prone to worry and fear, and her mind goes to the worst possible scenario. The hard part of this is I relate - I know what it is like to have those emotions but I have always been able to express what I'm feeling. She isn't. She doesn't know what she feels, doesn't understand, can't label emotions. Therapy for this begins soon though, so I'm happy about that!
I do wish she had friends, people called for playdates, that it didn't take so much time out of every day just to have her teeth brushed, those sorts of things. Because we don't enjoy seeing our children struggle or seeing them be so lonely. She can only handle noise and crowds and lights for so long before she is overwhelmed by it all, so even something she really enjoys doing - like going to an amusement park, can become a frustration for her.
