Why I Wouldn't Have Won the Mother of the Year Award in 2000.

My daughter is, and has for a very long time been, a horror movie enthusiast. I shamefully admit to allowing her to watch Sleepy Hollow once it had been released on video.

Not this one...

but this one.

She was 5.

I did cover her eyes during all the right scenes, though...or, at least, I hope I did. You know how guilt can sometimes distort a memory over time.

Because of her love for this goose-bump-inducing genre, she is rarely fearful of “scary” Halloweenish things. She can sit through movies, read books and walk through most any haunted house (of the commercial variety) with nary a whimper.

But she will not, under any circumstance, go near a certain trunk in our house alone. Why? Well, check back later tomorrow and I’ll tell you.

Right now I have got to get warm. I just got in from the football game and I'm absolutely chilled to the bone. Brrrrr. A chilly night in Middle Tennessee for sure.

This makes me feel better about letting (encoraging) my girls to watch the musicals Grease and Gigi around the same age. Not horror movies but the subject matter (as I look back on it now) was not appropriate for that age! I even took them to the play Grease when they were a bit older! That's when it dawned on me I should have thought this thru a bit better! LOL! But they loved it! And love musicals to this day! LOL!
Hope I catch Part II of the truck story! :)

We are chilly here in KY too! I am not such a fan of horror movies, but love a real haunted house.
