Thunder and Lightning

So we let him come downstairs and stay with us until the storm passed. It was kind of nice. He did everything I asked him to because he knew it was a privilege to stay up late. I got lots of cleaning done with a happy helper. Gary put him back down around 9:30 and to make him feel better, Gary put a flashlight on his headboard. He told him if hr got really scared, he could sleep with the flashlight.
