Our daughter, since she was not quite two, has been fascinated with creepy crawly things. Spiders, snakes, etc. She has always liked dinosaurs a lot too. Over the last year though, she talks more and more about... Other things.
I swear every other thing she says follows the pattern of "if you do X then Y bad thing will happen". She talks about ghosts and a man in her room at night, and she tells us about her dreams that are kind of eerie sometimes. She asks if it will be Halloween yet and has picked up a strong fascination with tornadoes.
Now, she does have her girly side; her other obsession is kitties and she loves to dance and listen to Katy Perry. She also speaks and comprehends incredibly well for her age and has pretty intense emotions.
We don't watch scary things with her or really talk about that stuff so we are just trying to understand... Why might our daughter be so into that stuff?
