Lately Claire has a problem with being scared. I don't even know what of - it changes almost daily. Just really spooked, especially when she's by herself, especially at night. So needless to say, bedtime can be a little rough.
Tonight she didn't want to go into the bathroom by herself to brush her teeth. M told her she needed to and they had the following "conversation":
C [yelling] - Rule number one: I'm too scared.
M - Rule number zero: You have to do it anyway.
C - Rule number negative one: I can't. I'm too scared.
M - Rule number negative infinity: I don't care.
C - Rule number negative... infinity infinity infinity: I don't care.
