Why are you awake?
I had a bad thought and it made me scared.
What bad thought?
I thought about what would happen if I drew you a picture, but I didn’t tell you I drew it for you and your tore it up and threw it away.
That is a bad thought. Luckily it would never happen. Now go back to bed and think only good thoughts.
But I don’t know any good thoughts.
What about when Baldy does her baby dance or shouts ‘ta da!’, or cooking with me, or washing the car with Daddy and getting splashed with the hose, or building Lego, or reading books. Or writing books? Luckily there are more good thoughts in the world than bad thoughts…
But you don’t know that. You don’t know everything, how can you know that?
You’re right. I don’t know everything but I definitely know that.
I saw you cry once after talking on the phone. I don’t know why you were crying, but I know you were sad.
(Taken aback) But that happened only once. How many other times have you seen me laugh and smile?
What? That’s nuts, why do you say that?
Because we’re always so naughty…
