Just A Little Incident Involving The Boogeyman
I realized that I forgot to get her clothes out for tomorrow so I went into her room to get them. So there I am trying to get this sweatshirt out the bottom drawer when I hear Lauren stirring in her bed behind me.
Then... AAAAHHHH!!! She screams bloody murder and throws the covers over her head.
At first I think she's had a bad dream and then it sets in... She doesn't know it's me and thinks I'm a stranger/monster/maniac in her room.
I walk calmly to her bed (so as not to scare her any more than I already have) telling her that it's mommy and I slowly lift the covers up to show her it's me. The look of terror in those blue eyes was enough to make me laugh and cry at the same time.
I apologized for scaring her and she told me she was ok. But man! I still feel horrible.
Worst. Mom. Ever.
