the troll

Molllie has been listening to my dad tell the 3 Billy Goats Gruff story since she was born, so I was very surprised yesterday that she was scared of the troll.  She found a copy of the book on the shelf and was reading it at nap time, but threw the book to the floor and began crying.  Andy took the book and put it back on the shelf.  Last night, she was still scared of the troll in the book so we moved it to our room and will put it in the basement.  The drawing is more comical than scary to me, but to her I guess it is repulsive.  Fear is irrational at times, but at least we can get rid of the mean old troll for her this time. It was also good for us to talk with her about how Jesus is with us always.  Prayer is a wonderful thing. Hope you allow Him to conquer your fears today. Blessings.

  1. awww sweet molly! it's amazing how one minute they think nothing of something, and the next they are terrified! i guess it's all about their stage of development and becoming more "aware" of things for them in a new light. hope she sleeps well and doesn't continue to be bound in fear!
