Nature’s Stilts

Lucy has apparently been going through what she perceives as a significant growth spurt. Yesterday, as we were walking …

Lucy: “Do you ever look down and go like … woah …whoah.” [Lucy staggers back and forth like a person with vertigo.]

Me: “Not really.”

Lucy: “I’m growing really fast, and sometimes it just seems like the ground is a lot further away than it used to be.”

Me: “Ok?”

Lucy: “I’m just afraid of heights.”

Me: “Like the height of your head from the ground?”

Lucy: “Yep.”

I think I must have missed this stage in my own childhood.
