Today, I fucked up... by showing my daughter videos of the Japanese Tsunami
My 7 year old daughter told me how cool tsunamis are and wish one would hit our town. I told her they are terrible and told her about the one in Japan in 2011 and how it had killed around 20,000 people. She didn’t believe me so I showed her a video on YouTube of a Japanese town getting obliterated by one. She freaked out, started screaming. We live by the sea and she is now convinced one will hit our town. The swell is quite big at the moment and you can hear the waves crashing from our house and it’s freaking her out. Like a good big sis she told my 3 year old how we’re all going to die, which freaked her out. I’ve had nearly 6 hrs of crying and screaming. They’ve made a camp on the top bunk and have been there for 2 hrs. Quiet at the moment…I’m resisting the urge to shout “tsunami!!!”….
