In the middle of the night, episode 2


Oh, hell, not again.

It's 3:33am.

"Mama!" Sobbing this time.

I stagger into the girls' room. Claire is face down in her bed, not making any sound.

"Clairezie. What's wrong?" I whisper, stroking her hair.

Claire flings herself over, arm across her eyes, and sobs something. I don't get it.

"What, sweetie?"

"I wanna watch a movie!"


  1. Well good to know that other children have strange nights too!

  2. Come on! Is that such a strange request? She's just warming you up for the lovely teen years.
