a chilling tale

Finally, the madness has ended. The beast, once garrulous and thrashing, now lies in repose, snugly curled in his Baby Bjorn. We sigh and smile with relief, feeling freedom trickle down our spines. We laugh and jest around the fire, secure that the hour is ours. Suddenly, amidst the merriment, I am struck--frozen in my tracks at the sight of a single eye peering ominously from the shadows. The beast, though still motionless, has awakened and prepares to take back what is his...our lives.

  1. Sounds like our life! Except that Harrison, when Hayden is spending the night with one of his grandparents and Chase and I FINALLY have some time to catch up on our gaming, decides that he MUST stay up until Mommy is also too tired to stay up any longer. :-)
