A Midnight Visitor

 The beloved Cowboy Blankie

Last night, a bloody little ghost burst into our room and woke us up.

I should probably explain.

Ty has started getting bloody noses, just like Ashlynn. Although, unlike Ashlynn, Ty doesn't quite know how to deal with them. He doesn't get scared, but he doesn't react fast enough. He thinks his nose is just running, so he keeps wiping and wiping until he's completely covered in blood. THEN he notices he's bleeding.

So that's what happened to him in the middle of the night. The only problem is he's really scared of the dark. Normally when he gets scared at night he throws his blanket over his head, like a flannel force field, and trots down the hall to our bedroom, or to the bathroom, depending on his mission.

So when he burst into our room last night, he was draped with his red cowboy blankie, covered in blood and dripping all over the carpet.

We finally got him, the hallway, and all of his bedding cleaned up and tucked back into bed, but not before teaching him to pinch off his nose the next time it happens!

Poor guy! How scary. You think it is something that runs in the family? Dad and I get them too. Wish I knew. I do know dry weather and stress tend to trigger mine. Hope it is just a phase for him.
