Venus is a Meanie

Well, it seems that Venus and Caroline have been having problems. (Caroline is on the mend, by the way, although still not eating much and doesn't have much energy. Thanks for the concern!) This evening, I put her to bed and a few minutes later here she comes into the kitchen with the saddest look on her face. I asked her what was wrong and she says,

"Venus is saying mean things to me. She told me I was a bad mommy and that made me sad."

At this point, she dissolved into tears. Now as any other mother will tell you, hearing someone being called a bad mother for no reason is just heartbreaking since we all know how we would feel - even if it IS your 3 year old daughter who is reporting that a non-living object told her that.

So I gave her a big hug and a kiss and told her that she was a very good mommy to her dolls and that I would take Venus out of her bed tonight. We went upstairs and I took Venus and laid her out in the hallway.

I knew something was brewing between the two of them because the past few nights when she was in a grumpy mood due to her being sick, she told me that she did NOT want Venus in bed with her. I didn't know why, but I think this is why.

Okay, so if you're still reading you're probably thinking I'm weird because my daughter is telling me that her doll thinks she's a bad mother. I know, it's all in her imagination, but it just makes me wonder where it's coming from since Caroline has never said anything like that to me - in fact she often tells me that I'm a good mommy and that when she grows up, she wants to be a mommy like me. Oh and that she wants to work at a computer like me too. (ha ha ha!) Little does she know...

So I'll keep you updated on this drama with Caroline and her "child." Here's hoping I don't have to get CPS involved.
