Fixing a Koala Nightmare

Every once in a while I take my adorable niece Livy to her grandparents cabin for a get away. It's a little cabin full of older furnishing and stuff my parents felt the need to keep. In one of the bedrooms sit a koala bear that I got as a graduation gift ages ago. Someone saw my cute bear and thought it would be funny to tell Livy about drop bears! Now she is terrified of the sweet bear sitting upon the chair. I think she envisions this when she looks at my poor bear.

Tonight when she was all ready for bed she covered her eyes trying to hide from the koala.
No sleeping!

Since she was so terrified I decided to make up a little story to help her fall asleep and maybe forget about the whole drop bear thing...

Once upon a time there was a smart koala named Klaude. He lived in a house very similar to this one. He was a sneaky little koala and like to sneak out of bed at night and head to the kitchen to look for sweet treats.


After sneaking a treat he would head outside to find his friend Botti the black bear.

Bear to Bear conversation

Botti was an avid painter so he would always talking to Klaude about colors and shapes, but inevitably their conversations always devolved into talk of food. This is usually the point where Klaude bid a fond farewell to his friend and headed back indoors. Klaude would climb up into his favorite chair and drift off to sleep, just like you should be. Maybe my own Klaude will have some adventures tonight protecting you from nightmares. 
The End

With the story told Livy peacefully drifted off to sleep and there were no nightmares had that night.
