My daughter, age six, sleeps with her bare, also age six. My son, age three, sleeps with his basketball and a stuffed tiger, age unknown. My other son, also age three, sleeps with a can of anchovy fillets – King Oscar brand, caught off Morocco and distributed by the H. J. Nosaki Company in New York.
