My parents were (and still are) very protective of my brother and me. They've often told me the story of them coming home from the hospital with newborn me. They put me in my baby seat in the back and were driving home. They looked back and my head had drooped down over my chest. Absolutely terrified that I couldn't breathe, they stopped dead in the street, Mom got out and ran over to the back. I perked my head up and looked around (according to my parents) like I was saying "what?" My mom rode with me in the backseat for the rest of the ride home.

Now, my parents are trying to give me some space, but I feel so unprepared for the world. I've been sheltered from it for so long, that I worry that I don't know what I'm doing.

Tiggs and sc are right, you need to give your daughter room to make her own mistakes and above all, trust your instinct. If it says something's wrong, it probably is.

my instincts have somehow gotten befuddled. :lol:

so many things make me afraid...
today hubby took her to church & when she got home I noticed her sleeves were wet. I asked her why, and found out that unbeknownst to hubby, she went into the bathroom with another kid and was washing hands in there. Then she tells me this other kid gave her hard candy to eat. Upon more questioning, she said he got it out of his mother's purse. OK, so I kinda freaked out a little bit. I don't like her wandering around a public place where we can't see her. We also have a lot of food allergies in our family, and I am VERY careful about what she eats. I was also hoping this kid didn't get into his mother's medicine bottles or something. He's I think a year younger than she is, she just turned 4. Then I'm peeved at my husband for not watching her closely enough. Am I very odd for worrying about things like this? :(

oh, yeah, it turned out to be Altoids, we called the mom...
(Altoids are mints, for anyone unfamiliar with them.)

Those seem like legitimate concerns. I don't think a 4 yr. old should be wandering away on their own and if you have alot of food allergies then I guess what she eats would be a legitimate concern, too. Dosen't seem odd.

She's sick today... :(
If she didn't have a slight temperature, I'd still be worried about the stupid Altoids, (thinking " Was it REALLY Altoids she ate?") 'cause she threw up this morning...
never thought a temperature would give me comfort...
