My subject is “Write a story about a child afraid of werewolves in his/her closet.” 

It was submitted by: http://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com    

  • “Mommy! I’m scared.”
  • “Maaaaaaahhhhhhmyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!”
  • “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy.”
  • “Mommy, help me.”
  • “Mommy, there’s a werewolf in my closet.”
  • “Mommy, I’m scared of the movie Daddy showed me. The man who melted will come after me.”
  • “Mommy, the movie Daddy showed me had goblins. I’m afraid the’re in my room.”
  • “Mommy! There’s a monster hiding in my room.”
  • “Mommy, please stay with me. I’m scared and can’t sleep.”

Every few nights, it’s the same thing. Poor AJ was too scared to be alone in his room. Poor AJ was terrified to wake up and be alone. He wanted his mommy to sleep with him till he fell asleep and sleep with him the entire night.

While this mommy loves her little boy to the moon and back, she can not sleep with her son all night. She saves those nights for when he’s desperately sick or on vacation. She stays with him till he falls asleep, often falling asleep herself then waking up about an hour later. Then begins the difficult task of applying mom-ninja moves to get out of a squeaky boy bed. Sometimes he stays asleep, other times she fibs and says she has to go to the bathroom and will be back…but she knows he goes back to sleep, then other times he wakes up and keeps calling for her or follows her to the bathroom. Those nights she knows he’s is NOT getting to bed at a decent time.

Where is Daddy in all of this? Well he’s either working or relaxing in bed. Don’t get too mad at him though. The little boy does not want Daddy to put him to bed, he wants his Mommy. See they have a special bedtime routine. First they read a few books then they do the One, Two, Three talk.

What’s is the One, Two, Three talk?

ONE thing we didn’t like about today. TWO things we did like about today. THREE things we hope for tomorrow. Mommy is trying to get her little man to think beyond himself when thinking of three things to hope for.

This Mommy knows she shouldn’t complain too much, because in just a few years this boy will no longer need his mommy. She will long to crawl into his bed and comfort him, but he won’t need her. Even with annoyance and exhaustion, she wants to hold onto these sweet and precious moments for as long as she can. No she does not want him to be scared, but she wants him to always need mommy’s hugs, kisses, and comfort. She wants him to know this mommy will always slay any monsters, dragons, werewolves, goblins and scary movie characters. This mommy will always protect her son.

  1. Aaawww, I was afraid there was going to be a scary story, but instead I’m feeling all fuzzy and warm. Thanks, Karen! 🙂

    C wakes up in his own bed every single night, gets up, sneaks into our bedroom and crawls into my bed. Actually he climbs over me. Just to make sure I notice he’s here. In case I was asleep. I often tell myself “it’s not going to last forever, it’s nice that he feels that he’s secure and snug with me.” Plus there’s always coffee.

    • I just couldn’t go scary babe, I tried but it didn’t flow correctly. I liked how this turned out…I love being able to take a prompt and make it my own.

  2. This is precious!!

    My kiddo used to be scared zombies were in his closet, so we pinned a Bumblebee (from transformers) poster on the closet door to protect him. He didnt want mama battling zombies and risk getting bitten so Bumblebee kept them in the closet.

  3. Love this.

    True story at 31 I freaked out because there was hissing in my room…turned out to be a mouse…(didn’t know they hissed) and first thought was ‘I need my mom’, second thought was ‘please don’t let it be a demon’.

    I’m a very logical adult. 😉

    • OMG…the fact that it was hissing is freaky!!!! I would want my mommy too! After reading all my gory crime books I am afraid there’s all sorts of creatures in the basement/

Would love to read your thoughts
