I Have Bin Spooked

People think my children are quiet.

They are.

Except my Mera.

She has never been quiet.

(except around other people, as of about a year ago)

But she is very private.

She doesn't want us to make a big deal of things.

Good things, bad things, medium things.

She likes to try to keep a low profile.

Which is tough when you have a booming, baritone smoker-voice, but she manages.

Part of being private for her is being sneaky, but sneaky-nice.

(good thing, cause if there's anything more detestable than a sneaky-mean kid, I don't know what it is)

She loves to leave notes or candy or money for people to discover.

She will let us acknowledge the kind deeds, but only if we do it one-on-one. No announcing it at the dinner table.

I don't know when or how she sneaked past us all, but a couple weeks ago we found these on our headboard. One above my pillow (Frankenstein with 3D arms outstretched, ready to grab me), and one above Ty's (a really scary vampire bat).

They'll be there for a while. Cause I love 'em.

That girl kills me.
