Annalisa has always been a big scaredy cat.
We all know that we can't watch any movies that are even a tiny bit scary- not even cartoons....
because then she'll be scared for weeks.
One of Annalisa's (dumb) classmates told her the story of Bloody Mary on Friday.
I didn't know about it because I got to go to a hotel that night.
Her sweet (even dumber) older sisters and brother decided to prove to her that Bloody Mary doesn't exist.
They all went into the dark bathroom and did the whole ritual. (Something about Bloody Mary, I have your baby......it's a little different from when I was a kid. We just said Bloody Mary 3 times while turning around and then she would appear in the mirror.)
Apparently they all ran out screaming because they swear they saw something in the mirror.
Now Annalisa will not go near a bathroom unless someone is with her and all the lights in the house are on.
Hopefully she'll get over this one quickly!
(I have to be honest.....I am still scared there are things under my bed that will grab my feet.
I have to jump into bed as fast as I can and pull my covers up.
Just don't tell Annalisa!)
