For her, it's sinking in.

My son, "Mom, what if I can't fall asleep?"

"Well, you could think about your playdate tomorrow after with A and how exciting that will be."

"No, that's not what helps me go to sleep at all.  If I think about that, I can't sleep."

"You could think about hot dogs and how full your belly is."

I get a thumbs down from the boy.

My daughter interjects from the top bunk, "Or you could think about how much God loves you and your family loves you and how even when they get really mad at you, that doesn't make the love go away."

Thank you, Fred Rogers, for this book.
