"Whats wrong baby? Are you okay?!"
My little Lulu was standing in her crib - tears running down her face - half naked because she likes to undress before going to sleep - and shivering like a frightened chihuahua.
I had never seen her like that before. Even though Bubba was also awake - and probably quite hungry - I scooped Lulu up into my arms and rocked her, trying to calm her down as best as I could at the time. After a minute she had finally stopped crying and her red face was more of a pink color.
"What happened little Lu? Why were you crying?"
"Monsers, mommy...there are monsers in the house"
"You mean monsters, baby? Where are the monsters?"
"Everywhere...Bubba saw monsers too!"
At the end of all this, I'm still not sure if Lulu saw an actual monster
I can't do that, though, because there are monsters out there in the world. Kiddie bullies attack other kids at school - adult bullies demean other adults and put them down - bloggy bullies attack others online.
Yes, monsters are everywhere unfortunately. Why can't I just put my babies in a bubble of happiness forever?!
