Peas is pretty sensitive and compassionate. For a 5 year old she displays shocking empathy.
She also worries a lot. When I was pregnant with LittleDude she was terrified. She believed that we would be getting rid of Pixie and getting a new baby. It took her a while to realize that we would not get rid of anyone- we were just adding a new baby to our family. Once she got that she was exc suited and happy again.
I had wrist surgery to try and fix my wrist and she was so scared that the doctor would cut off my arm. Peas was so relieved to see I had both arms when I got home.
It must have been so scary for her to worry about those things. I am glad that she could tell me though and trust me to help reassure her.
