Lil' dude, you don't always have to be so brave.
Last night, you let out a big cry around midnight. You woke both Daddy and I up. He sat straight up in bed.
You see, you are so quiet at night; you're a sleepy little mouse. You never make a peep.
Twice more after midnight, you made noises, little whimpers, frustrated grunts. You cried.
You know, you don't always have to be so brave. You can let one of us know you need us. We would be there in a heartbeat.
Even if it's the middle of the night, even if it's dark, even if you're OK but just need to see someone.
We will always be there.
