everything loves you

Paloma has been waking up in the middle of the night and has had some trouble falling asleep. Sometimes she says she's scared.

So, kind of inspired by Goodnight Moon, I went through everything we could see in the dark shadows of her room, and told her it loved her.

The towel that we used in the bath? It loves her; it kept her warm and dry.

The clothes hanging up? They love her; they're soft and warm.

The noise from the vent? It loves her; it's warm air from the heater, blowing just to keep her cozy.

Etc. I think it helped her feel more secure about the shadows, to think that they're actually things that love her. :)
