The past few months I have been noticing something very strange about my Toodie girl. At first I didn’t think it was anything but now I am starting to wonder… why does Toodie LOVE scary movies?! She is only three years old, this can’t be normal. It all started when I found her in my room one day and the Halloween trilogy was airing on one of the movie stations. I didn’t even notice she was watching it until I walked in freaking out because even Michael Myers scares ME as an adult! I immediately went to shut it off, standing in front of my television screen so she couldn’t see anything more. She got so upset with me, yelling, screaming, and crying. I couldn’t believe it. I told her she can’t watch scary things. The last thing I want is for her to be waking up in the middle of the night from horrible nightmares. Every time I ask, she responds with, “It’s not scary mommy.” It’s always the same answer. Lately, I have been catching her watching scary shows and movies even more. Toodie is so smart. She knows how to use the remote control and look through all of the television stations. Now don’t get me wrong, there are times I do walk into the room and she is watching other shows. When it isn’t the occasional horror movie it’s music, jewelry network, and even the gardening channel. My child has very eclectic taste in television programming. I think the real reason this puzzles me is because she is deathly afraid of a bug, even an ant, but will watch a man with a scary mask walking around to creepy music. Whenever a scary movie does come on she watches intently and then starts cracking up. Could she really understand that it’s not real at her age? Nothing seems to bother her. Am i missing something here? I think I should invest in a pink cape for my fearless Toodie. She may just turn out to be a Horror movie junkie like her momma.
