The Rock Star used to be terrified of roosters. And wolves. And especially the idea of roosters and wolves in the same room as him. We tried explaining to him that if there were both roosters and wolves in his room, pretty soon there would be only wolves but this was hardly a comfort.
Why my boys decided to develop irrational fears of poultry and flies is beyond me. I'm just glad we don't live on a farm where both would be abundant.
So here's my question: what strange or irrational things have you or your children been afraid of? Let's all have a good laugh. Because if I can't start laughing about Matthew's fear of flies I'm going to tear my hair out.
What? It's been a bad fly season.
