How to Scare a Twin Mom


How to Scare a Mom of Twins?

Picture this:

It’s middle of the night, all is dark and quiet. Mom of twin toddlers is sleeping soundly, dreaming of the day when sleeping comes about more often. Then, a creak in the night wakes the Mom from slumber. She bolts upright in bed, {and since bed is positioned for a straight view to the hallway} the hallway is what she immediately sees.

This is is the view….

Ok, so it looked more like this….

It was dark though – I could have sworn there was fog involved, maybe some glowing eyes. Regardless, the two of them standing there side by side, watching me in silence….gave me a freaking heart attack!!!

Having watched many scary movies in the past, I debated on what to do, in order to make it out alive. Reaching for the phone and calling 911 did cross my mind. Hiding under my covers was another option. Jump out of bed and slam the door shut on them? A door stops creapers in the night, right?

Instead I screamed, ‘what are you doing? Go to your room!!’. Anger, yes anger is better than showing fear!

Their intense stare broke into giggles and they waddled quickly back into their room.

I sat there for the longest time, wondering if maybe they somehow *knew* about The Shining and how that would make me pee my pajamas. Nah, that’s impossible… Should I put a bell on their door so that I could hear them come out? By this time I was full-on scared, and didn’t want to get out of bed in the dark – what if something was under the bed?

Instead I chose to hide under my blankets.

What has this Mommy become!?!

    Sorry, I’m laughing so hard I could die! That would FREAK. ME. OUT! Even when I wake up and there’s only ONE kid staring at me, but two? Flashes of The Shining are sooooo not cool.

  2. Kat says

    OMG, that is too funny! Of course, I totally get it. I’ve woken up to the toddler stare myself so I can relate to the whole heart attack feeling. I think the double stare you get would have finished me off!

  3. says

    I cannot wait for the day my future children do this to me… I apparently did it to my parents and I have heard my mother’s screams as my younger siblings have done it to my parents. It’s probably genetic and we will probably all reap our just rewards for our giggles.

  4. says

    Too funny! As a Mom of twins, I usually react with something close to anger, if I see them in the middle of the night.

  5. says

    bwahahahaha…. oh, sorry, it’s not supposed to be funny when Mommies are scared like that…… but I’m still chuckling! I hate it when I wake up from a dead sleep and there’s a child standing 3 inches away from my nose, just looking at me…… definitely freaks me out!

    Hopefully the girlies won’t wake you up like this often. Adrenaline isn’t good for sleeping…
