To Shaunta’s house we go

Filed under: At home with MRP,Kidspeak — mighty red pen @ 8:12 pm

La familia de MRP was sitting around talking about oh, I don’t know, bats, and S. (age 4) said, “Oh, they have those at Shaunta’s house.”

“Who’s Shaunta?” we asked.

“Shaunta is not a person,” he said. “Shaunta’s house is a place.”


Over the next week, we got many clues about Shaunta’s house. As we already know, there are bats. For another thing, it’s dark. It’s scary. There are vampires. And mummies that look at you with their stinky eye.

It seriously took an entire week for us to figure out what Shaunta’s house was. S. was adamant that there was no person named Shaunta, it was just Shaunta’s house.

I think it was the vampires that finally tipped me off. “Is Shaunta’s house a haunted house?” I said.

“Yes,” S. said, giggling.
