Mama Monster

  It's the last day of the Monster Blogfest to celebrate Christine Rain's launch of her new book, Fearless.  I hadn't actually planned another monster story, but as it turned out, last night,  my daughter had a monster in her room.

I had gone downstairs to get her water before tucking her in for the night.  She waited in bed, arranging her stuffed animals.

I came back upstairs.  As soon as I got to her door, she let out a scream.

Concerned, I ran over to her.  "What happened?" I asked.

"You scared me," she said.

Huh?

"You were so quiet, I didn't hear you coming.  I thought you were a monster."

Yeah.  I'm a monster...the Mama Monster.  The most fearful monster of them all.

Hee Hee.

    1. It's not surprising. When kids are so focused on something, it's very easy to startle them!

  6. I didn't have a monster until I was an adult. Its name was Dr. X.

    Love,

    1. Yes, but not as much of a problem as when I was married to it.
