I have a question, and this has only just came up in the last week or so, but my 13 year old difficult child, she has suddenly developed (almost overnight it seems) an EXTREMELY sensitive sense of smell. Its strange though, because it isn't like certain scents are making her sick or anything, but she is almost like, ATTRACTED to certain scents. And since she is compulsive, it's like she catches a smell that she likes, and she HAS TO follow it and.... never noticed this before now, but it all started with my shampoo, she sat down beside me at church and caught a smell of my shampoo (same one I have always used) and followed me around all day sniffing my hair... That is just one example, but there have been several other times in the last few days that I have caught her following something that she smelled. We have a rule at our house, for everyone's safety, and for my sanity, that the children are not allowed in the kitchen when I am cooking. Being 13, there is times when she will be in helping me, but if she isn't helping, she isn't to be in there either. Well, last night I made spaghetti for dinner, and she almost had a complete meltdown when I reminded her she wasn't supposed to be in the kitchen. Her fit was because "she wanted to stay and smell the noodles". Note, this is BEFORE the sauce got put in them, so it was just pasta...... Have any of you EVER HEARD THIS BEFORE??!!??!!??!!
