Ayay insisted that I read to her from the latest issue of National Geographic — not just the articles and photo essays but the advertisements as well. A picture of a glowing butterfly on a sleeping man’s shoulder caught her eye.
“What’s that?” she asked.
“That’s an ad for a sleeping pill.”
“Oh. Are sleeping pills magic? I think they are because they make you sleep!”
“Hmmm…” (My typical response when I don’t know exactly what to say to her.)
She continued, “I think we should give Nizzy sleeping pills so she sleeps longer, especially during her nap times.”
