Sometimes Peppa Pig is what you need

Do you remember how you went to sleep when you were a small Child?

Someone told you a story, didn’t they?

Or you dreamed of a story.

You were a fairy child, and you had sparkles in your hair and you had a magic wand.

Everyone looked at you, and you smiled like a soft faced Angel.

Sometimes, you had white laced Wings, and you floated above the golden yellow fields.

You looked beautiful.

Sometimes, you went to Wonderland with your friends; you got into Ferris wheel and the boy you liked, noticed you.

He talked to you; you had ice-cream and Popcorn with him.

You smiled.

You yawned, and you drifted into the slumberland like a Princess.

You woke up excitedly hoping you would get permission to go to Wonderland on the weekend.

Boy was waiting to notice you.

Magical times.

Now you are old.

Deadlines and making up reasons for not meeting them, became the last thing you did before closing your tired, dark-circle ridden eyes.

Now your eyes close only after midnight, after your brain finally gives up after making hundreds of scenarios on what could go wrong on the Presentation the next day.

Going to sleep is not magical anymore.

Instead, waking up is magical.

How much you wish you could sleep, just a couple more hours.

How soft the pillow feels against your face.

What went wrong?

You had homework too, when you were young.

You had exams; you had controlling parents.

You did not have any money.

Still, you went to sleep with all might in the world.

You needed your Mom to tell a story whenever you were afraid and could not sleep.

What do you need now?

Maybe a story.

Or maybe a Child telling a story.

Do you have a Child?

Even if you do, would they help you fall asleep?

Never.

Or maybe you need a cute Child voice snorting and giggling.

Or you need a Child singing what all the animals Old MacDonald had on his farm.

Or

Baby shark, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Baby shark, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Close those eyes.

….

Good night
