She's Afraid of the Dark

Mama!
she says
Mama!
Maaaaama!
(we are working on sleeping with the hall light off)
What?
(although I know perfectly well what)
I'm scared of the dark. whimper.

The dark is nothing to be scared of. What are you scared of IN the dark?

The shadows.
(that answer is good enough to merit another
hug, kiss and stuffed animal.)

Just close your eyes. It's still dark , but there are no shadows.

Love you. Sleep well.

Maybe it is the night light! What if she had a cute pink sleeping mask?!
