Many of my October nights were spent working at the Oblivion haunted house. There were several nights I remember Boo (4) not wanting me to leave. The conversation would go something like this.
Boo: "Daddy I want to come with."
Me: "No Boo, I'm going to the scary house."
Boo: "I don't want to go the scary house and Mommy doesn't want to go to the scary house. I don't want to go to the scary house cuz it's too scary for me. "
Me: "That's right, but you get to stay here and play with Mommy and your brother, ok?"
Boo: "Ok Daddy." proceeded by a hug.
