When the CFO and I put the Triplets to bed last night William came up with a new ploy to try and get one of us to stay with him or let him sleep in our bed.... Monsters. Just like any good idea it took off like wildfire and Addison was soon boo-hooing about the Monsters that were going to get her.

The CFO made an immediate counter attack with no more movies or TV explaining that is how they got scared. Keep in mind she was explaining to them, not me. What happened next was nothing short of peeing in your pants funny. They started a discussion of what TV show and/or movie they could watch that didn't have anything scary in it. Here is a short list of what ensued....
Keep in mind they are the ones coming up with the movies AND the reasons they can't watch them.
  • Catchow (Cars) - No, there is a combine.
  • Wubbzy (Wow Wow Wubbzy) - No, there are robots.
  • Einsteins (Little Einsteins) - No, there are bats and spiders.
  • Dora (Dora the Explorer) - No, there is Swiper.
  • Super Why - No, there are Dragons.
  • Kai-Lan (Ni Hao Kai-Lan) - No, there are ants.
This went on for over an hour and covered almost every show/movie they have seen. It was primarily Addison and Jackson throwing out ideas and William pointing out the scary part of ANY show or movie. Hilarious!!!

Of course, what they do not know is that this calls into serious question that they "forget" what we tell them.

Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.
