Conquering Fear

Audrey was a flower girl in a beautiful outdoor wedding this weekend. At the rehearsal she completely froze. On the way home, we talked about what kept her from practicing. She said she was scared. I was surprised by this, fear wasn’t an emotion I was expecting her to articulate about this. She said that maybe she should put Green Kitty in the basket so she wouldn’t scared. I was very proud of her for being able to identify what was wrong and come up with a reasonable solution.

Green Kitty, and Audrey, did great in the wedding.

    Good for her! I love that cat, it looks much healthier than The Minion’s hedgehog.

    When my little guy was in kinder, he was terrified of being without Louis (a stuffed siamese cat) for so long. So we took a picture of him and taped it in his cubby.

    Kudos to your little one for solving the problem. I’m sure she was just adorable with the cat in the basket. :)
