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.

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