Last night's bunkbed conversation in the dark (I was listening on the steps):
Athan: Alex, I is scared of the dark. Will you protect me?
Alex: Yes. I will protect you.
Athan: Good. Cuz last night I did see a monster in mommy and daddy's room and it was really big and scary.
Alex: You did?
Alex: Well, I will protect you.
Athan: Fanks (Thanks).
Alex: You're welcome.
