that's scary

so, Anna has always been a very delicate soul. it takes her a long time to get used to change and she has a laundry list of shows that she won't watch because they're too scary. Jason and i have worked hard to toughen her up a bit, or at least keep her from bursting into tears at other peoples houses. so far, she does okay. here's an example of her watching a new Backyardigans episode:

i can read her mind, "okay this is new. it's not something i'm entirely used to, but i'll give it a try, wouldn't want to be rude to my cousin.""alright, a little too new, scary even. just cover my eyes (like mom and dad taught me) until this part is over. no need to burst out crying."

oh, i hope she continues to get braver as the months and years move forward.
