Throughout the winter, we have had several conversations about fear and what the 2 younger boys are afraid of. Owen's 5th grade teacher was reading the students a scary book. After this, he has wanted Liam to sleep with him for comfort.
One night, I told Liam that he needs to start sleeping in his own bed because they don't fit too well in the twin bed.
Liam said, "Mom, I'm scared of bears."
I said, "Liam, we don't have any bears in our forest. Are you afraid of the 3 bears and Goldilocks?"
Pause. . . . . . Liam's thinking.
Liam said, "Well maybe the Daddy bear."
