I have been tagged in my first meme by Emma at MeThe ManAndBaby (toad in the hole? I love it!) so I am hoping that this is how a meme works :-0
I actually have more than one fear and I guess in order of how afraid they make me, their order is:
3. Descending Escalators
The first 2 fears have been with me for as long as I can remember, and I guess are pretty self explanatory.
However, the 3rd one is a newish one which I guess I have suffered with for about 6 years now. I don't think I am really scared by an escalator going down - I just cannot step onto it! I can go up an escalator but when it comes to going back down I cannot do it! I have to look around for some stairs or a lift! I think I am afraid that I will fall over maybe ? because I am rather accident prone and clumsy!!At least at the moment while Burton is still in a pushchair I can use a lift, but what will happen once he is walking?
I know that with all my fears, it is important not to influence my son incase he develops the same fears (I am sure my spider phobia comes from my nan who hates spiders, and made such a fuss whenever one was near her). However, I do not know how I will overcome the escalator fear (any ideas? I can do it if someone is with me and I am holding onto them and we walk on in synch!). Poor kid - he will have an embarrassing Mummy who will need his help to step onto an escalator instead of me assisting him!!!
I am going to tag:
So please reveal your fears...........ooooh er!!
