.... Amelia watches Riverdance!
Amelia is very much attached to Mommy. She has a proximity alarm that goes off if Christie gets more than 3 feet away from her or out of direct line of sight.
Once a week Christie goes by herself to Monahans for Weight Watchers meetings (and a little sanity break). Obviously, Amelia isn't too thrilled with this. We thought I would just have to tough it out until Christie comes home or Amelia grows out of her separation anxiety. Then I found a (partial) answer by accident.
I was sorting through my anime music videos, and I had one playing set to some Riverdance music. Amelia focused on the computer and let me hold her without fussing while the video played. As soon as it ended, she started fussing, so I pulled up another one. Again, it had her attention. Other music didn't work; only Irish fiddle music works. I only have a few videos, and most AMVs use other kinds of music, so I had to get creative.
Youtube to the rescue! I've been playing around finding funny videos there (Star Wars and Harry Potter trailer with 133t subtitles) and figured I could look for Riverdance clips. Yup! All the Irish fiddle music Amelia could want! Here's the one she's watching in the picture. She even likes to dance with Daddy to the music.
