If I keep saying it, maybe I’ll believe it, but I’m kind of worried that I have a 6 year old Goth. It all started with Halloween when she wanted to be a Spider Countess with black hair and a spider’s web on her face. After that she announced she was a vampire called ‘Darkness’.
Then she told me that she had grown out of My Little Ponies and we needed to repaint her room.
Me: Ok – what color?
Me: What? No – that’s not a nice color for a bedroom
Me: How about a blue grey?
Imogen: How about Turquoise?
She went to an after school party in one of the teacher’s classrooms, yesterday. They played with Honey Bunny the class pet, had ice cream, listened to a bunny story and made a bunny mask. When I picked her up this is what I found!
Can you see the scar on the forehead and the red devil bunny on the cheek? So now I’m worried that it is a cry for help…
Me: What’s with all the vampire and devil stuff? Are you unhappy?
Imogen: Well, I used to be girly and like pink, but then my heart turned and I went to the dark. I try to touch the pink, but my hand is forced away.
Me: OOOHHH KAAYYY – but is there something worrying you? Is anybody hurting you or saying mean things?
Imogen: What? No! (The look on her face clearly said, you moron!)
This is her pre-phase appearance.
