"No Monsters In My House"

My bed was shaking so VIOLENTLY, I almost bounced right onto the floor!
I was too scared to look, and too scared to just hide under the blankets.
I just knew monsters were on the bed.
44 Monsters were in my blankets.
44 Monsters were in my dreams.
With caution, I peeked out from under the blankets.
I saw shadows on the ceiling.
I saw shadows on the walls.
The shadows looked like they were dancing.
What should I do?

I decided the best thing to do, was to face my fears straight in the eyes.
I found a little flash light and with a click, I had the beam right on the monsters.
The jumping up and down on my bed stopped SUDDENLY.
I heard giggling.
There sitting on my bed- was the suspicious dual.
They were not monsters at all, they were friendly spooks and goblins.
I was so relieved to know that monsters were not in my bed!
When morning came, the 3 of us went outside to play in the falling leaves.

The leaves were falling so fast, that it was so hard to see in front of me.
Then I noticed shuffling ahead of me.
Leaves shuffled to the left, leaves shuffled to the right.
Through the blurr of the falling leaves, I saw him- It was Mr Scarecrow.
He did not look scary to me, in fact he looked very friendly.
He looked like someone I wanted to play with!
We all giggled , turned summer salts and tossed leaves in the air.
And then,,,,,,we started walking down the path.
We shuffled our feet in the leaves.- all four of us - Spook, Goblin, Scare Crow and me.
Shuffle the leaves to the left,,,,,, shuffle the leaves to the right!
That's what you do when the monsters come into your dreams- just shuffle them away!
Nitey nite my friends- I will sleep better tonight.

Tweedles, You really had me going at the beginning. I am so glad the monsters are friendly and you got to go out and play with them. We get monsters around here too this time of year. Mommy is kind of a Halloween nut and wait until you see the pictures of our scary house. Please don't be scared cause they are not real either. I have some fun monster toys too. If you don't mind I think I will have some pictures with them too.

licks and sniffs and love Sasha

That sounds scary in the beginning hahaha! You know sometimes we had some fears to overcome, we have to face it to overcome it. Like the guitar, yes the guitar I am so afraid of it especially when it is playing, but when I heard someone sang with it, I felt happy and relieved it wasn't bad at all. Monster toys? Nope we don't have it, we chew right away when it doesn't look good for me and Oreo. BOL!

Coffee and Oreo

Ah Tweedles! You were so scared but everything turned out ok! Fears are good to face..... makes us stronger!

p.s. my mom wants to that your mom for the comments on her blog. We all feel down at times and the trick is to pull ourselves back up! : )

Oh Tweedles! We were so scared at the start of that story and thought maybe those two jokers were in cahoots with that pack of weirdos that we blogged about in OUR front yard!

I'm glad yours turned out to be friendly....I still think ours are shady!

Wow Tweedles you had another adventure. So glad you are safe, I was worried there for a minute. I had a monster in my field but it was just a stupid dummy, Mama called it a deer target?

Sandy said... are so pretty! You are so lucky to live in a place where it's actually cool outside now. I thought maybe a ghost had gotten under your bed....we sleep with the light on.

Tweedles, I'm so glad the monsters weren't really monsters. Sometimes facing our fears shows us that what we fear isn't so bad after all! Being outside on a nice fall day is wonderful, especially with ghost and goblin and scarecrow friends!

Hank said...

Heck, Tweedles, honey......I knew you'd win over them goblins! :)

Jan Mader said...

Oh are so brave. I have a feeling you really know how to face your fears and make lemons out of lemonaide.

You don't know a stranger. Everyone wants to be your friend. Your stories bring me so much joy! My granddughter likes to read your stories too...did I ever tell you that? Yepper!

Smart puggie! how brave you are!

A brave and wise pug indeed! Thanks for stopping by our blog: but Grasshopper, patience you must learn. Our blog makes us approve comments before they can be seen - and we don't know how to change that!

Molly the Airedale said...
