Daisy: You just never know with her

So yesterday when I went to pick the girls up from school, there was a parent holding a chihuahua right outside the kindergarten classroom. Great, I thought. Well, we'll just see how this plays out when Daisy comes out. I fully expected, and braced myself for, utter hysteria from Daisy and the usual accompanying stares from surrounding people. But Daisy came out of her classroom, eyed the woman with the dog, and came over to me, and everything was fine. Clearly, she was nervous, but she held it together. I told her how proud I was of her.

And later, I asked her, "How come you weren't afraid of that dog, Daisy?" Know what she said? "That wasn't a dog, Mommy, that was just a chihuahua!"

Okay!

I second (or third) that assessment - I think by definition a dog CANNOT be smaller than a cat :)

Could that be a way towards breaking down her fears? Rather than grouping everything under the banner of "dog", apply the actual label to the breed. Instead of seeing "a dog at the park" you can see "a labrador at the park".

Apologies to chihuahua owners, but Daisy is right! LOL Seriously, my mom always says that our kids were put on this earth to prove us wrong. Just when you're prepared for one thing...
