“How many people can fit in this bed, mommy?” Jimmy asked.
“Just two. Me and daddy.”
“But the bed is so huge!”
“This is the last time. You have your own bed. It’s time you start sleeping in it.”
Jimmy pulled the covers to his chin. “But I have to sleep with you every night, mommy.”
“There’s no monsters in your room, Jimmy.”
“Not my room. Your room. The monster says I’m protecting you. You’re lucky.”
She smiles and pulls Jimmy in closer to hold him.
“He’s right there, mommy. Look. Do you want to see him before he goes?”
