It’s time to take part in the latest Mommy Reality Challenge and as this one ends on the eve of Halloween, the hosts, Jen and Celeste have come up with the rather appropriate challenge of getting us Mums to share a photograph of something scarey in our lives.
We recently threw away some very scarey looking rugs, that had been put out back and forgotten about….They had actually grown toadstools – not very pleasant at all and positively scarey – but did I think to take a picture? Oh NO! And they would have been perfect!
Finding Something Else Scarey…
Wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.
I looked under the chairs. I looked under the wood pile. I even looked under the children’s bed and there was not one thing that that could be described as scarey!..It surprised me, I can tell you!
So I sat down and had a good think about anything that could be classed as scarey in our house and I came to the conclusion that it is the occupants that scare me the most, plus my daughters Yorkie (terrible attitude!) and the hissing, spitting, feral cat that we have named Morris (we have bought him a plastic house and feed him daily, as he keeps the mice away!)
So Here Are My Entries For Scarey #MommyReality!…
My Scarey Family…
I managed to get my family to pose for this picture without too much hassle. They know it is going in blog post, but as they didn’t ask I didn’t tell them that they were going to ‘star’ as my #MommyReality. I’ll admit that they don’t look too scarey in this picture, but you should see them all first thing in the morning! There was no way I could take a picture of them first thing without risking my safety, but just look in their eyes and you’ll know I am speaking the truth.
As for Rascal (the big dog trapped in a little dogs body), she is really scarey. Her eyes are so evil we have to keep them hidden behind her fur.
Morris, The Very Scarey Feral Cat…
Morris is probably the one thing around the house that strikes fear into all of our hearts…Depending on his mood.
He is a totally feral cat that we have been feeding for the last year as he keeps the mice from coming into the house. Since he has been hanging around the wood pile, the mice don’t seem to nest there, which suits us just fine.
He is at his scariest when he is hungry and waiting outside the back door. The rest of the family will usually use the front door rather than go to close to Morris when he is in one of his hissy moods. Once he has been fed he happily hangs around, out of harms reach and looks relaxed…But I wouldn’t risk touching him as he has taken a swipe at my hand just for putting his food down!…Crazy, scarey cat!
Well that’s my #MommyReality for this fortnight. Why don’t you pop over and join in with the Mommy Reality Challenge? It’s just a bit of fortnightly fun!
