Things That Are Scary to Kids and Adults

There are many things that I find scary, including running out of money, peanut butter, and toilet paper. Valentine’s Day can also be frightening.

But Jayla has personified an even bigger fear.

Last year, when Jayla was six, she wrote this in her journal:

That is one skary test, deserving of nine exclamation marks. I can hear the test’s maniacal laugh, made that much more sinister because it’s a lipstick-wearing test. Those are the worst kind.


Thanks to Jayla’s mom, Veronica of Mama Bird Musings for sending this to us. Please visit her blog.

Now it’s your turn. What do you find skary?
