I see dead people 

Elliott has got to that age where he believes in Monsters in his wardrobe and he doesn’t think of them as the loveable Sully from Monsters Inc. He really gets freaked out. Because I am such a organised ‘Susie Homemaker’ Mum it’s not always possible for Elliotts wardrobe door to close because I have done such a fantastic job of putting his clothes away, they’re hanging out waving hello.

Elliott is that kid who will frantically call you, he’ll be sat up in his bed, looking tiny, and innocent and wide eyed. “What is wrong poppet??” He’ll not quite make eye contact with you because he is ever so slightly looking over your shoulder and he’ll say “Mummy, the boy won’t stop talking and I can’t sleep.” … (bum tingle moment) “what boy sweetheart??” he is still not making any eye contact with you, looking over your shoulder “the other boy that lives in my room”. See, now some parents might tell their kids monsters don’t exist but when you live with someone like Elliott, you take no chances and masking tape that fucking wardrobe shut. Steve and I are the biggest wimps when it comes to these things. Steve has left Elliotts room clenching his butt cheeks saying “ffffuuucccckkkkiiinngggg hell!!!” When Elliott asked him to read a night time story to the boy stood in the corner of the room. I’ve left the house when he told me we needed to let the little boy have a turn at hide and seek. I once read a book to Elliott we had just picked up from the library, there was a word I couldn’t read straight away and hesitated as I worked it out, Elliott said it clear as day and I looked totally baffled and said to him “how did you know that word??” Looking up at me innocently with his big beautiful eyes “Pupa told me”. His Pupa had passed away 1 year previous to this happening. 

We tend to let him sleep in the shed most nights. He says it’s comfortable…
