Through therapy I have learned that I have a habit of catastrophic thinking. It's part of my anxiety issues and trying to protect myself from harm. If I can imagine the worst case scenario then somehow I might be able to thwart it off or minimize the impact. Last week my 2 yr old daughter looked me straight in the eyes at snack time and said very calmly, "You're going to miss me when I'm gone Mommy." WHAT??? Oh my word, why is my tiny little girl saying this to me? Is this some sort of omen? Is she saying goodbye to me? Panic ensued, I eventually calmed myself down, but I had an uneasiness about this that made me very uncomfortable. This is not something we say to her, so where has she gotten this? She's 2 so she doesn't exactly have a whole lot of original thoughts at this point. Fast forward, several hours later and she's playing with her baby sister and says, "Uh-oh, single lady." Palm to forehead! She's quoting song lyrics!
