Cogitations with the Kids: Monsters

Evening sunset

The 5 year old: Do monsters exist Mummy?

Me: Only in your head.

The 5 year old: Arrrrrgghhhh. There are monsters in my head. Arrrggghhh. Arrgghhhh. Hee hee hee.

Me: They are only in your head because you let them in. Kick them out! You don’t have to let them be in there. They don’t exist in real life.

The 5 year old: Arrrgghhhhh. Monsters in my brain. Arrrrghhh. Arrgghhh. Hee hee hee.

The 4 year old: [very concerned] Can the monsters in your head hurt you Mummy?

Me: [what have I done?] No. They are just made up. Made up monsters in your head can’t hurt you!

The 7 year old: Unless the made up monsters in your head are zombies, Mummy.

Me: Why’s that then?

The 7 year old: If the made up monsters in your head were zombies, then they would eat your brain.

Me and the 4 year old:  :-0

The 5 year old: AArrrgghh. Arrrgggh. There are monsters in my……”I…AM…..A…….ZOMBIE……..” hee hee hee.
