Erika is an interesting little girl. I had mentioned before the fun
with shampoo bottles and now there is something new to add to the list
A couple days ago Erika let out an ear-piercing scream that could be
heard throughout the house. I ran over to see what was wrong fully
expecting to find blood gushing from her head. When I got there I did a
quick scan of her body and found no blood. She wasn’t holding any body
parts; nothing appeared to be wrong, well except for the ear-piercing
scream. When I ask what was wrong she pointed to her toe. After more
careful examination I saw there was a piece of thread about 30
centimeters long that she was dragging as she walked. Not cutting off
circulation, not caught on anything, it was simply that it was
Half an hour ago it happened again. The scream wasn’t as loud but I ran
over to her crib and check what is wrong. She shows me a loose piece of
thread on her pajamas. I broke it off and all is well.
Erika also has an issue with hair. If she finds a hair it doesn’t scare
her but it is the same reaction you’d expect from someone that doesn’t
like insects. I’m sure she can spot dog hair at 30 meters. When I got
home today she took me by the hand and lead me over to a piece of dog
hair. As she backs behind my legs she says, “yucky”.
I sure hope she doesn’t develop a fear of carpet or else getting around the house is going to be difficult.
