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.
"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.
