PS - I think to much, huh?
I wouldn't be worried at all.
It just goes to show how creative she is.
Both of my kids did this.
storytelling- it's a sign of a creative, bright girl!
it's lying when she makes up reasons why something broke, etc... otherwise she's being creative.
as for the party thing- be proud of her! she sounds like she's truly thriving
awww, those are such cute stories. She is fine - she is just a little girl who has a lot to think about :)
I think it's wonderful that she can come up with such creative stories. She's bright and who knows, maybe she will grow up to be writer. Happy b-day Abby!!
A big water slide and moon bounce - Um, can I go to school with her please?!! I'd be more worried if she didn't want to go.
Yes, it sounds like independence and that's fantastic and you never ever want to discourage that, but at the same time I also see it as she wants to do everything fun that is happening at the moment. She doesn't want to wait for her party on Saturday - she wants to have fun now and do everything. So, I see it more like a spontaneous gratification kind of thing than a sign you have are losing your "little" girl. Does that make any sense? Or maybe it's just me with DS turning 4 soon and I'm nowhere near ready to start thinking about him being some big independant hot shot.
And the story telling is WONDERFUL! Just interject once in a while and try to help her understand the difference between fact and fiction. Fiction is great, but it's also important to remember there are times when fiction is not okay. Like having her tell her dad a story about something you two did earlier that day, and that is a story about what really happened. Then there's a different kind of story about something you make up in your head, like flying ponies or whatever she comes up with. lol!
Awww how sweet! Abby telling stories is completely normal and shows a very creative mind. I wouldn't be worried about her wanting to have a party at school either. That shows she loves her new school and is very comfortable there. Happy birthday Abby and have a great weekend Deanne!!
LOL - her's isn't about flying ponies...that's to girly...
It's about talking sharks!!! LOL
Party Thing -
I guess it just took me off guard because the old school was a nightmare for her and the look of dread was always there...no matter if it was cupcake day...moonbounce day or what.
But everyone is right....She loves her new school, she feels loved and respected. She adores her teachers and she has come out of her shell.
And JJety you are right.....I want to go do the moonbounce and super slide too!!
As for the story thing, I just don't want her to get carried away. She doesn't just tell random stories and she is always very open and honest about accidents, things that break.
Like yesterday she accidently ran over Jake's fingers with a riding toy....she immediately, jumped off, hugged him and yelled for me to help Jake.
She was completely honest with what happened.
The story telling is at night and in bed.
So I guess I just need to relax.
I wonder where she gets her OCD from....LOL
Haha, I'm not sure deanne....lol.
Did she have fun at school?
