When I watch Hers Truly watching TV, she goes away. Everything about her goes blank. My child stops being there.That really freaks me out.
I am utterly used to my utterly shining, engaging daughter. When she stops being that way, it's just weird. I know that all kids do this, in their way. I know that I did it. I know that this is my daughter's cultural heritage.
In good news, I may have gotten her to stop saying, "I don't want that," being said in a panic and unhappy to, to saying, "Next one," instead. Next, I have to teach her to use the arrows on the keyboard.
