Day 72: September 14th, 2010

I'm going to be a total Debbie Downer here and talk about something that makes me sad.

Paige hates my parents. I know she does. She has some seperation anxiety in general - but is very tolerant of letting others hold her for a little bit... except my parents. Literally as soon as they pick her up, she starts SCREAMING at the top of her lungs and crying actual tears (I never see her do this other than when they hold her). She won't stop until my husband or I take her back and seriously take her far enough away that she can't see them. Even if she's in a great mood it happens so I know it's not just an overtired or cranky thing.

I think I might have an idea why she does it (they smoke in their house & cars so they both always smell like smoke, and it's not subtle either) but I don't know how you tell someone that. I know they thought she does it for everyone else too but they're kind of seeing now that she doesn't and I know they kind of "blame" her (can't think of a better word) for it. I can't mention it either, they're both really sensitive and embarrassed about it so if I brought it up I know they'd get defensive. So I don't know what to do... I guess just hope that Paige gets over it.
