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.”
Lucy: “I’m just afraid of heights.”
Me: “Like the height of your head from the ground?”
I think I must have missed this stage in my own childhood.
