Yesterday was a strange day........ mum is developing very strange behaviour.....more so than usual....... i have come to accept that if she doesn't want to eat something she will either try to hide it or throw it on the floor........ yesterday....I heard what I thought was her spilling something......I looked up and she was pouring her tea quite deliberately on the carpet I asked her why she had done that and she said she didn't know.....I told her I just wanted to understand .....she said there are many things we don't understand(very lucidly) Over the last week I am finding her putting more and more things in her underwear.....newspapers,sandwiches,my credit card(shouldn't have left that out),photographs.....even one of my shoes I was cooking tea yesterday and my youngest son shouted me "mum....can you come here! Nannas on the floor!!!"....I ran in....she hadn't fallen....she'd got down on the floor and was crawling on her hands and knees....I asked her if she was ok.....she replied "yes....are you?"....and I asked her what she was doing "I'm playing cuckoo"..she replied....said she didn't want to get up and carried on crawling on all fours......a bit later I got her up....... Is this common? Its a far cry from nearly 2 years ago,just after dad died when I was so worried that I phoned my sister in law for advice because mum was putting her undies on over her tights!!! That seems so trivial now....... Is there a game called "cuckoo"?
