Princess R has always had a big imagination and likes to pretend play. She has many different people she likes to pretend to talk to and to turn into. She has a very active imagination and it is really neat to watch her develop her creativity.
Lately though she has been talking about her “little brother Triton“.
& it is kind of freaking me out.
She goes into big detail about what he looks like and how he goes to school with her. What he likes to do and what he is not good at. She will have conversations with him like he is right there.
I don’t know what to make of it. I really don’t.
I am not a religious person so I can’t really believe that he is ‘here with us‘ and that she can really see him. I can’t buy into that.
She was too young to know what happened with him – so I don’t think this is a manifestation of grief or anything – that wouldn’t make sense.
Am I just reading too much into this & she just picked the name Triton for her ‘little brother’ imagination because she knows the name?
I am in what i call a ‘trigger zone‘ right now. Since removing my birth control this trigger happens monthly again and leave me in kind of a black hole for a few days. That combined with Princess R’s new “playmate” has me a bit freaked out.Share This Post: Tweet
