So is this normal childhood behavior?

Or is living in Egypt traumatizing my daughter?

Today as she played with her doll (which she RARELY does) she said, "Oh no! Mom! My baby doesn't feel good! I think she's going to THROW UP!"

This caught my attention and caused me a bit of alarm. But when she said, "Quick, mom, go get a bowl!" I just had to laugh. Silly girl. Poor doll threw up like 20 times over the next few minutes.

Hi Shirlee-

My family and I are moving to Egypt from Texas in less than 30 days and if you don't mind I'd love to email you to pick your brain if possible.

That is hilarious....I am still laughing. "Pretend play" is sometimes more real than we want to believe :)
