Z is for Zombies!!

I have tried to raise my kids right - taken them to church since they were small - prayed with them - taught them there are no such thing as "monsters". This is one of my son's favorite books. He has read it many times and will still pick it up occasionally. I know more about surviving Zombies than I hope to ever need to know. "mom, the safest place to go is to the end of a dock and then remove the wood in between you and the land because Zombies don't like water." Me - "Jake, there are no such thing as Zombies." Jake - *big grin* Jake - "mom - NEVER hide anywhere with a lot of other people. Zombies are attracted to noise." Me - "Jake, there really are NO zombies." Jake - *Laughs out Loud* * hysterically*


Have you heard of this book yet - It is Pride and Prejudice re-written and Zombies are added in! The original P and P is one of Reagan's favorite books. This was the first MUST read book of the summer for her. I just think it is weird. Of course, I had trouble getting through the regular P and P - all those weird ways they say things - I never really knew what was going on anyway. Then throw in Zombies and AAARRRGGHHHHH!! NOT for me - but she enjoyed it very much.



And last but not least - Lizzie - sweet adorable Lizzie - she LOVES Scooby Doo and all their Zombie chasing adventures... Zoinks!! what is a Mother to do???

This is too funny. It seems that what we want them to avoid the most, is what they are drawn to the most!!!

But really, you don't think there are zombies out there? I think I saw one at the grocery store just this morning!

I used zombies for my post, too..but another kind of zombie. My daughter has that P and P book and is reading it. She also has a T shirt that has about 12 ways to kill a zombie on it. And she's 22!
