Be afraid.....

So, the week is waining... I'm waining....
Spencer has got some serious fears going on, and it's starting to drive Drew and I to the edge. First one, he's afraid of the Muppet Show. I'm not sure why, he has never liked the larger monsters on that show, always ran out of the room, but now it's spread to Gonzo, the Swedish chef, he creeps back in the room only to see someone he doesn't like on TV and go running (and screaming) out. Second one is bugs. Any bug, he SCREAMS, his life is ENDING....
Our new tactic is to put him in his room, sometimes he's just REALLY tired when he has these fears, but sometimes he's just afriad.
Do you guys have kids that have fears? What do you do about them?
I'm talkin irrational fears, not the running out in the street fears.

  1. Bria has vomitophobia. She is incredibly irrational about it too. Like, if someone in her LIFE (not even in the same room or house or anything) throws up, she freaks out and hides behind a chair for two days. We won't even discuss how she acts when she herself has to throw up.

    Not much I can do about it...except just explain to her that it isn't the end of the world. Luckily, it's not something that comes up very often. :)
