So after we got all of that settled and everyone was calm again, I just know where Abby is going to take this. She's five. And she compares what she has with what everyone else has. Completely normal. And she also doesn't fullly understand the scope of Makenna's scoliosis. So in her mind, crazy as it sounds... she's been shorted.
It started with the pictures in the gym that I posted of Makenna in her cast. I posted them so people could see what the cast looked like and that Makenna was OK and would be fine. Abby saw them and immediately said "How come Makenna has her pictures up at the gym?"
And in the spirit of kids hearing all kinds of things... Abby knows about Makenna's website. She's never seen it, I never told her about it - but yet she knows it exists and of course asks..." How come Makenna has a website and I don't?"
And when we discovered Makenna was allergic to cats... Abby wanted to know what she was allergic to. When I told her nothing; she was sad. "Ughh.. I'm not allergic to anything?"
And so now, we add another imbalance (in Abby's mind). So I await the next round of questioning...
Although she didn't seem jealous of the shot of epinephrin... Guess that one just slipped her mind? :)
Ahh, to be 5.
