This morning while helping me clean the garage Heather paused and tensed up all her muscles. I asked her what she was doing. She said, “I’m trying to take myself apart.” She’s done this every so often for the last several weeks since she’s seen Frozen enough times and tries to emulate Olaf (the snowman that disassembles).
This evening she started hopping and then started getting upset because, “I can’t float anymore.” We don’t know when she used to float, but when Jess tried to help her she said, “No, I just want to float by myself.” We tried to explain that people can’t float.
We fear that the mantra from Daniel Tiger of “keep trying, you’ll get better” may be detrimental in these cases.
