joshy (coming into our room in the middle of the night): I'm scared of the dark!
Mommy: Go to sleep.
joshy: It's too daaaark!
Mommy: You have a nightlight. Go to sleep!
joshy: I can't! I'm scared!
Mommy (in a very desperate way): And now you're waking everybody else up! Go to SLEEP!
Daddy (in a calm, kind voice): Guess what, Joshy. I got a new pocketknife.
Daddy: I got a new pocketknife.
joshy: Oh. Is it the black one?
Daddy: Nope, it's not the black one. It's a different one. With a light on it.
Daddy: Go to sleep now, and I will show it to you in the morning.
joshy: Ok. (closes the door and goes to bed for the rest of the night)
