My grandson is just over five months old. He’s started to sit up on his own for a short period of time. He’s beautiful. I get to spend lots of time with him and I love it!
My daughter has the office next to mine in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, so we work our schedules around one another. We have an online calendar to keep up to date. It’s totally amazing since I still write my
appointments in a calendar.
Usually, I take Mondays off, so my daughter works that day. The rest of the week we have decided to go with I work in the morning, and she works in the afternoon. Well, yesterday, Friday, we decided to play it by ear. We took turns doing readings.
One day last week I was taking care of my grandson while my daughter was doing readings. She had several. We kind of ran out of things to do so I decided to put on a Sesame Street video about counting to the number 4. He liked it before, so I thought easy-peasy.
We started watching the video, which included a slight, pretty, young woman singing. He was digging it like the last time he watched it. The woman introduced the four monsters and they started singing. Bam! My beautiful baby boy lost it – he cried like no one’s business.
My daughter, just out of a reading, came rushing in to save him. LOL. I felt terrible to have traumatized my baby boy. He calmed down and my daughter and I chuckled.
Backstory: Seriously, I haven’t watched the news in years. I no longer watch scary movies. Can’t do it.
So, what was I thinking? LOL. I was thinking he would love to watch that video again and learn to count to four. The next day my daughter had already forgotten about it. And here I am still writing about it.
The real point here is how real is fear.
In the grand scheme of things, I’m thinking that baby has moved on from that experience. He might like the video again someday. I won’t be finding out.
I know, books. It’s time to buy more books.
Happy New Year!
