My almost three year old daughter decided today she was terrified of the shower. I have never seen her react to something so badly before. After the way she acted today, she will not be in the shower with me again anytime in the near future.
Kairi likes to join me in the bath, at the end of every bath I shower to wash my hair. She has been with me while I do this several times before and never had a melt down until today. She was happily playing with her watering can and bucket while I shaved, washed myself and washed her. I was all done so I started draining the water and pulled the curtain, at this time Kairi was still playing and unaware of anything going on.
The moment I started the shower she turned into a crazed child. I swear it was like she was a caged wild animal. She started screaming at the top of her lungs, clawed the curtain open and tried to jump out. She slipped, fell backwards and narrowly missed smacking her head on the tub. I grabbed her and tried to calm her down while yelling for her dad to come and get her. Have you ever tried to hold onto a slippery wet and terrified toddler, it is not an easy task. It took Chris only a few moments to come and get her but the whole time she was screaming and trying to get away from me and out of the shower.
After daddy rescued her from the evil shower she was fine, she went out just dried, dressed and played happily while I finished washing my hair and got out. I have no clue why she freaked like she did but I have no intention of doing that again!
