The Big Sissy!

One summer evening, during a violent thunderstorm, a mother was
tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the
light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, “Mommy, will you
sleep with me tonight?”

The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. “I can’t dear,”
she said. “I have to sleep in Daddy’s room.”

A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice
saying, “The big sissy.”
