An Actual Conversation: New Mental Disorder

The kitchen radio is perpetually on, and last night it was on NPR.  It was on Fresh Air and Terry Gross was interviewing an actor about the movie Black Swan where Natalie Portman plays a complete whackadoodle ballerina with a serious mental illness.  Specifically, she had some problems with her mood.  I was in the other room at the computer doing Christmas shopping (which is killing me, btw) and Sweet Pea came in:

Moo Disorder.

Sweet Pea: Mom!  This woman has a disorder called Moo Disorder!  Do you think she eats grass and thinks she is a cow?

Me: Uh…  I don’t think that is what they meant exactly.

Sweet Pea: Good, because I thought that was weird.

Yes, that would be weird, alright.

I am a stay at home mom who now and again sneaks away to be an in-home family therapist. My husband and I have 3 boys: Sweet Pea (12), Pickles (9) and Pumpkin Pie (4). Oh yeah. We have Doodle Dog, too. You guessed it! He’s a boy. At least he pees outside.
