“It was a dark and stormy night …”
“Are there frogs, mommy?” my four-year old daughter asked, her eyes huge.
I smiled and hugged her. “No. No yucky frogs.”
“Frogs scare me,” she said and snuggled closer.
“I know, baby.” I went back to the book. “It was a dark–”
“How dark? I’m scared of the dark.”
I sighed. “I know honey. It wasn’t too dark.” I opened my mouth to start again.
“Are there big dogs? Big dogs scare me,” she whispered and looked around in terror.
I winced and looked at her scars. “Yeah, me too, baby.”
