OK, I know the stuff that scares most of us SN Parents, about our kids...that kind of thing I truly understand. And this question has nothing to do with those fears. In fact, should someone ever ask you a question about what frightens you the most the 'go-to' response of ANY parent should be regarding their kids.
If not you flunk Parenting 101.
But aside from that, and family and friends and junk, I'm talking primal, piss-your-pants type FEAR. We all have a few. Some of us have fears that are so paralyzing that they absolutely, positively affect our behavior. For example. I have a tremendous fear of these creatures that all need to be hunted down and killed.
Is that not the scariest image on the planet or what? DAMN it creeps me out just looking at that thing. What is most disturbing about the image is how calm the water is around the shark. Usually you see photos of sharks and they are exploding out of water at something.
This one is more...I dunno...beckoning. Like...c'mon in. Hey it's cool man. I won't bite. Much.
I FUCKING HATE SHARKS.
I am scared to death of them. And yet? They fascinate me as much as they scare the shit right outta me. However, I will not enter their domain. And I sure as shit will never allow my kids to. Regrettable. But hey, that's why they call it FEAR. They never said it was rational.
How about you? You got any poopy pants generating fears you want to share? Let's hear 'em.
TOTALLY UN-RELATED NUGGET OF CHEWY GOODNESS:
Oh and by the way...as of now, this week, it's safe to announce that Bennett is back to saying, with REGULARITY...'DAH-DEEE'. Two DISTINCTLY different syllables strung together, said in the same order, and often in DIRECT REFERENCE to yours truly. He even said 'CRAH-KUH' for the first time a couple of days ago, in reference to, you guessed it, a salty, crunchy treat.
It ain't Shakespeare, but Hell yes I'll take it. I'm working on trying to get him on digital video when he is being particularly chatty. Cause he still has the screaming fits too. But I've been researching ways to try to minimize that and have been stratemegizing. Will keep you posted.
The times they are a'changin'. :)
