The children have been away with James for a long weekend and they had a great time together, but Lottie is having the most awful nightmares. She’s woken twice now talking about a three-headed dog. It turns out that James let her watch Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone. Thankfully Dylan was in bed. It goes without saying that he didn’t mention this to me so I couldn’t work out what had upset her until I’d spoken to him about it. It just shows that he doesn’t understand what’s appropriate for his own children. I need to make sure that I keep reinforcing this sort of thing.
I need to seriously reconsider Halloween – I was going to take them to a Halloween party but I don’t want to trigger any more nightmares.
