Counting Sheep

“Mom! Hey mom!”

Jane set a soapy pan back into the sink and went to see why her son was calling from his dark room.

“Can I have a glass of water?” His voice was tiny, coming from somewhere snuggled deep into the pillows and comforter.

May I,” she replied. “And yes you may.”

When she returned, she asked, “Having trouble falling asleep tonight?”

“Yeah.”

“Why don’t you try counting some sheep?”

“I already tried that. I counted all the sheep, then all the turtles and bats. I tried to count the monsters, but…you know.”

“What?”

“Can’t really count them.”
