Sleeping in the new VW camper

Stephen & Emily in the VW

Stephen & Emily in the VW, some time later

From the “Kid Talk” file (June, 1990), when Emily and Stephen were 4 1/2 and 3 1/2 years old:

We just got the new VW camper. E and S wanted to sleep in it the first night.

D: The problem is, I’d have to sleep in it, too.
E: Why?
D: Because I can’t leave you guys alone.
E: We wouldn’t be alone. I’d be with Stephen and he’d be with me.
