Lately after playing happily in her playroom for a bit, Darby will yell “Ahhh!” run out and say that a monster, or dinosaur scared her. Sometimes she says specifically, “the monster with the apple” – I’m pretty sure she is talking about the witch from Snow White with that one. No more Snow White movie, no more Snow White ride at Disneyland! There is a part on the ride, where you turn a corner and the witch, holding the apple, comes out a door. The last time we rode it Darby jumped and I realized it scared her for the first time!
While I don’t like knowing that Darby is scared, it’s hard not to find the whole – there’s a monster in the playroom – bit kind of cute and amusing. After all, we know there’s not REALLY monsters or dinosaurs in there. If you ask her where it is, she will point and say ‘right there!”
Here’s a video – it’s not as soon as she ran out declaring the monster had scared her, but right after. What an imagination!
