SCARY spooky or SILLY spooky?

Doesn't the word, "SPOOKY" have a confusing meaning to a 3-year-old? Aidan has been saying it a lot lately and relating it to so many different things! Recently, spiders have been SPOOKY! So spooky that they are waking him up in the middle of the night "crawling on him." So, to remedy my sleep deprivation, I decided to do something about it. We made our friend, SPOOKY the SPIDER. We talked about how some things are SCARY spooky and how other things are SILLY spooky! SPOOKY the SPIDER is definitely SILLY! We even made a web for him to hang on!

So now, Aidan talks to SPOOKY the SPIDER all day, every day! He tells him about his day, what he ate, what he is thinking and now, I have to talk to him like his new best friend! What have I done! LOL! I will say this though, he no longer is scared of spiders because his new friend is SILLY not SCARY.
