So, about a month ago my husband's dad called and was talking to Lydia, our 3 year old. Grandpa is a dairy farmer, so she always asks if any of the cows have had babies. He told her about one of them that gave birth next to the pond and the calf ended up sliding into the pond and drowning.
Ever since then she's been terrified of bath time. She's fine to sit in the tub and scrub & play, but once it comes time to wash her hair, she loses her mind flipping out. Kicking and splashing, trying to get up and out of there. Its horrible. Like the water being poured over her hair (even it doesn't touch anything but her hair) just triggers something. I don't know.
I was just hoping someone might have some ideas on how to make this easier on all of us.
