Things That Go Bump in the Night

Last night as I helped Muddear get ready for bed, the kids were doing the same. Mariah loves to keep her door closed at all times of the day and night...typical teenager. Of course this means that her door is constantly being opened and closed.

Nevertheless, as Muddear is getting in the bed and Mariah is exiting her room for the 50th time, the hinge on the door squeaks. Immediately, Muddear looks up and says...

"Did you hear that? I think a bird is in the house!"

Mariah could not help but laugh and before I knew it, I was laughing too.

Dear Nikki,
I don't know how you do it but you manage to find the funny in the everyday. I admire your spirit. Thanks for sharing.

Great story, great moment of bonding. Pleased to meet Mariah. BTW, love the name Mariah. The door swinging has me thinking of restless wind, too. So on top of a good chuckle from the bird heard, now have a wonderful song playing in my head. Hugs, Jane
