He wanted to go to his Mom, but he could NOT leave his bed. There were monsters under there. They would grab his feet and drag him under and do horrible things to him. The things monsters do. He would be okay as long as he stayed under the blanket. Monsters cannot get you when you are under your blanket. But he really wanted to get to his Mom. She would hug him. She would hold him. She would make the monsters go away. After all, Moms are big and very strong. Moms do NOT know the meaning of Fear.
All of you Moms out there, with little boys. This is who and what you are to a little boy. I know. I used to be one.
