Cameron's new favorite game is to walk up to me (tiptoeing sneakily) and whisper, "LISTEN Mommy!" Then I whisper back and ask what it is, and he responds, "It's a [fill-in-the-blank] bear, lion, dinosaur, dragon, spider, etc. It's so SPOOKY!" He's really into suspenseful things right now, I hope my playing along with this game is not traumatizing him. He really seems to enjoy it!
Here's how our conversation went yesterday:
Cam: Oh Mommy, listen!!
Me: What is it, Bubba?
Cam: It's berry spooky.
Me: Listen, what is it?
Cam: [Whispering very quietly] It's....fruits and veggies!
The truly scary things in our day :)
