The Bedtime Monster

(Eclair and I are eating in the kitchen.)

Eclair: "Is the bedtime monster real?"

Me (confused): "What?"

E: "Mom told me that if I dont go to bed on time, the bedtime monster would eat me."

Me: "Well if mom told you that, it must be true."

E: "Huh?"

Me: "Would mom lie to you?"

Eclair (without hesitation): "Yes."

(she goes to talk to mom, to double check with her)

E: "So all these years I've been afraid of the bedtime monster for nothing?!"

Eclair asleep in the nest she built on the floor next to Thing One's bed.
