I finally weaned DD off of needing someone in the room - but now she asks me to sit on the steps, and I swear she can tell as soon as I get up and go downstairs.
Drink, tuck-in, blanky, friend, are the usual requests but last night she was in bed quietly for close to an hour and... Sobbing! I ran upstairs expecting that she had peed everywhere or broken a bone.
She wanted LOTION.
