For a few months now, when it is time to go to bed, you would say, "Mummy, I'm scared". When I ask you what you are afraid of, you would say, "I'm scared of Alligator", which is strange because I try never to put anything in a spooky light, not even during Halloween or anything like that. And when I ask you where the alligator is, you would point to the floor.
We've tried several ways to allay your fears. The bedside lamp is left on dim, there's a nightlight that projects the moon and stars on the ceiling, and you are surrounded with your toys.. "All of them". :)
And, of course, lots and lots of hugs and snuggles :)
