rattling her cage

Amy gets stuck on things and likes them to repeat.  Sometimes I give in and allow her to eat the same thing for two days.  Sometimes I deliberately prevent her from wearing the same gown night after night.  I feel like I am enabling when I participate in the obsessive behaviors and I feel like I am denying her a feeling of stability when I interrupt the behaviors.  Either way, I worry.
