Carol Anne would always fear the night because she knew when she laid her head down on her pillow her nightmares would suffocate her as she squeezed her doll. Every night just shortly after midnight she would scream out for her mommy, but the screams would soon go unnoticed because when her mother would come in and check on her she would find nothing wrong. To make matters worse she had no bedroom door so anything she saw at her door would only inflame the situation. Every morning she sat with her mother at the kitchen table reliving her nightmares over and over in hopes her mother would believe what she was telling her is not a dream. Finally, her mother said, "If you don't stop this nonsense you are going to get the spanking of your life." Tears flowed down Carol Anne's cheeks as she said, "Mommy, don't worry when morning comes I won't be sitting at the breakfast table pleading with you to believe what I say is true."
