I wasn’t going to lie to my kids but…

(c) 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

‘I see absolutely everything. Do I have to tell you off again?’

It does the trick. They go quiet. A moment later, two sets of eyes peek out into the garden. They have their ‘I’m innocent it was his idea’ expressions on.

‘How can you see, mummy? You’re hanging up the washing.’

‘You have your back to us, too.’

They don’t know that twin toddler boys are the noisiest creatures in the world.

‘I have eyes at the back of my head and I can see through walls.’

I hate myself for the lies, but some days there’s no other way to contain them.

I’ve chosen quite a surprising angle for this week’s MFtS, given that I could easily have gone down my usual creepy route with the picture prompt. I bet you’ll find plenty of creepy stories here.

  1. I have twin little brothers, and when they were toddlers, they were definitely noisy little creatures. Lovely story. On the creepy side, I actually believed my mom when she said she had eyes in the back of her head. Every time she turned her back to me, I freaked out and covered my eyes because I was afraid a single eye would peek out from behind her hair!

  2. I remember being mystified that my mum could spot me misbehaving so easily – now, of course, I realise how rubbish kids are at covering up their misbehaviour.
    I tell my son ‘Mum’s are always right’, which I don’t think he ever really believed, but it still makes me laugh. If only 🙂
