MONSTERS IN HER HEAD


Oh what an imagination my Sofia has. She loves to play outside and even when nobody is out there to play with her, she will go and rock herself on the swing. So today as she was swinging i heard her running back to the house with a terrified cry and this is how our conversation went as i rushed to get to her....


me: "sofia, sofia, what happened, what's wrong?"

sofia: "there's an animal"

me: "oh, no. how big?"

sofia: "this big" (as she stands as tall as she can and reaches way over her head. still crying and shaking and terrified)

me: "wow. that is really big. it's okay, why don't you go inside and i will go find the big animal"

so after checking out our apparent jungle in our back yard, i return to sofia and question her some more.

me: " sofia, what did the big animal look like?"

sofia: " well it was purple, and it came from over there and then it jumped in the water."

so beware of any big, purple monsters in YOUR back yard!!

Little weirdo! She is cute but strange. Maybe you should play the song from the 50's, 'Purple people eater'.
