Peppermint Holly: Night Ten

Sometimes it’s beneficial to be the parent. I knew what Holly was up to long before we were awake in the morning.
“I noticed your mom wasn’t feeling well today, so I decided I’d stay by her bed in case she needed something during the night, because we all know your dad sleeps like a rock!”

I for one was thankful for Holly’s thoughtfulness. I didn’t end up needing her though. I wasn’t that sick.
