Scary story (don't be alarmed)

The other day I did something to scare BB. He was wearing a t-shirt that said "Croc Swamp" with a picture of a crocodile on it. I said to him, "Do you know what scares Mommy? Alligators." He looked down at his shirt, pulled it out like the alligator was coming to get me and I said, "Oooh!" He pulled on his shirt again and said, "Rrrrar," and I exclaimed, "Oh!" and pretended to be scared. It was a fun game that lasted for a few minutes. LB was sitting on my lap at the time and watching the exchange.

A little while ago our smoke detector went off because I had lit a candle almost directly under it. We have some sort of a stench in the back of the house where we think an animal may have expired in the attic and I am trying to circumvent the smell since we're having guests for dinner. I came back into the kitchen where LB is eating a late lunch and said, "That scared me."

"Rrrrar!" LB said as I walked away, and when I turned around he was pulling on his shirt like BB had done yesterday with the alligator. Only, LB is wearing stripes today.

Just the beginning of them learning from each other!

I agree with LB that stripes are scary---especially horizontal stripes!
