Thunder boomed this evening at bedtime and TRex was scared. As he searched for his puppy dogs and sunk deeper into his bed, where I had just kissed him goodnight, DQ ran around his room, oxygen cord trailing behind. She ate all the monsters she could find so that her big brother wouldn't have to be scared.
He protested: "But there are more hidden under the bed and in the drawers!"
She ran to the drawers and put her hands under the bed, then gobbled up more of those scary monsters.
She patted her tummy and declared "I'm so full."
But TRex was still scared and just knew there had to be more monsters near his door.
DQ took a deep breath and gobbled up those remaining monsters as well, wiped her brow, and stated in a most matter-of-fact manner "now, I'm really, really full."
As the Mad Scientist and I shook our heads and laughed, TRex was saved.
