Kathleen has been having some pretty good nightmares over the past few days/weeks.
She was laying next to me just a few minutes ago on the floor. She yelled Mommy like she was lost or scared or something and woke herself up. It seems she dreamt we'd left Sammi somewhere.
While Shea does tease her about leaving her places I'm pretty confident that this is not why Kathleen has been dreaming about it or even thinking about it while awake. A few weeks ago, I don't remember exactly when, I went looking for Samantha, and couldn't find her. We looked everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Shea was at the point of wandering the neighborhood when we found her just standing in our bathroom afraid she was in trouble, so she was hiding and keeping quiet. She scared the living daylights out of all of us. Kathleen was in hysterics. She was crying and really upset that Samantha had gone missing. This isn't the first time she's had issues with her sister being "lost". Sammi and Kathleen have never been separated. I will say that first off and they have never in their lives been lost. But even the thought of Kathleen being with out her sister makes her go into hysterics. She has no problem going with out her, but someone leaving Sammi or doing something with Sammi with out her scares her to death.
She is tied to the hip with Sam in a very emotional sense. I think she is her back bone sometimes, the strength she feeds off of. Kathleen is a smart girl, but she's really shy. She has been for a long time, and I just hope that school this coming fall will go well. Thankfully she'll have one little girl from daycare at the same school, so maybe that will help out. If they are in the same class even better!
