Question for Mom

May 4, 2008

“How long will night be?” I asked from my yellow bed just after the light went out. Even guarded by stuffed animals, I needed more information before falling into the night.

“About eight hours,” she replied from the doorway each time, her answer always reassuring enough that I had no trouble closing my eyes long enough to sleep.


  1. Sweetie you were guarded by more than stuffed animaals. I seem to remember a lot of Smurfs at the ready for battle if need be! Me I think the green sofa bed would feel very safe to me these days! Love ya!

  2. Smurfs in battle — definitely! I was just talking about them on Sunday with a fellow Smurf-lover.
