Dear Tattered Angel,
One might be surprised to learn that often our little angel asks to be put to bed each night as the clock ticks eight. At night as the physical activity of dragging your cast about the house has exhausted your reserves, with kind words you ask to be taken upstairs, have your teeth brushed, and to be placed in bed with your pile of books, so you can quietly lie in bed slowly turning the pages, studying your favorite images until the sun sets over the horizon and your room darkens with night. Put to bed with only your cast on in order to help you sleep cooler, sometimes hours pass with out a sound, but a quick glace finds our little toddler still laying in bed with her tiny face hidden behind the cover of a propped up book. Most nights you request a different set of books to study, but your favorite remains your Mickey books.
