First I hear something hit the wall from my daughters room and some muffled shouting.
I go in her room to see her copy of Lord of the Flies on the opposite side of the room and her face down in her pillow yelling about Piggy and Simon and how she can't stand people and it makes her cry ....and theres no way she's delivering a seminar on this book on Monday and crying about it.... and the teacher can just forget it unless he wants to pick a happier book... what is his problem anyway and why are people so meeeaaaannnnn??!!!"
Ok.. soooo.. I put out that fire.
I walk in the living room where my 9 year old is watching Men in Black and sniffling.
I ask "What's wrong buddy?" and he wails..
"What if aliens are real? I DON'T WANNA BE PROBED!!!".
So we had a little talk and picked a better movie.
Sigh. Is it a full moon or are my children crazy? Don't answer that
