A Fear of Toys coming to Life

Story Told by Desirie (BigMama5)

I was downstairs doing laundry with Ava and she saw a big bag of her toys by the entrance of the laundry room and said "Wook mama theres my big pink pony!!!" I then went on to explain that we were going to go through all the toys in the basement and organize them by giving Evan his toys and putting them in his room and all of her toys in a container in her room. She looked at me like she had just seen a ghost and replied, "I dont think so!!! That pony is going to get me. Keep it down here."

"Was There Lots of Blood?"

Last year I opened Desirie's picture drawer to retrieve some old photos I wanted to convert. Evan and Ava were very involved and asking to see pictures of themselves. Now, most of these photos were pre-digital camera so the most recent photos Desirie had developed were of Evan as a baby. When Ava kept asking to see a picture of herself. The closest thing I could find for Ava was a picture of Desirie 8 months pregnant with her.

Aunt Jayne: Here Ava, you're in this picture.
Ava: Where?
Aunt Jayne: You're Mama is pregnant with you, you're in her belly!
(Ava concentrates on the picture and then slowly looks up)
Ava: Was there lots of blood?
