"Mom? Mom? Can you wake up? I had a nightmare."

"Oh, no. What was it about?"

"Bad guys were getting me and now when I try to go to sleep, I go back in the same bad dream."

"Okay. Let's think about some nice things."

"Like what?"


"All right."

"Playing soccer with your friends."

"That's a good one."

"Ice cream. Kittens. Sunny days. Bike rides. Blowing out the candles on your birthday cake. Brandon's tree fort. The beach. Hitting a home run. Car rides with the window open. Frisbee with Dad. Babies. Pizza. Your teacher. Ponies. Reading books. A new box of colored pencils. Swimming pools. Butterflies. Big trees. Basketball in the gym. Thanksgiving. Baseball cards... Bob? Are you asleep? Bob? Sweet dreams."
