Setting: Your room. You are in bed waiting for a story from Dad -- Don't Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late by Mo Willems. I walk in the door.
"Want to listen to the story with me?"
"Will you cuddle in bed with me?
"Of course -- can I share your pillow?"
[I lay down next to you.]
[During the story...]
"I'm rubbing your back. Does it feel nice?"
"I love it, yes."
"Let me take your glasses. And your hair clip."
"Can I scratch your head? It feels so soft!"
"Look at your funny hair; it's covering your eyes!"
[I think, for a moment, about falling asleep there...]
[The story has ended.]
"I want a hug. I'm rubbing your back again!"
"I love you so much, sweet dreams."
"I love you too."
