Two nights ago, Evan woke up at 3 am and came into our room shaking. He told us that their were some "guys" in his room floating around. We let him come into our bed and then he "saw" these guys in our room. He was really scared. It took him about an hour to settle down and fall asleep. The next night, as it got dark, he started to worry about them coming back again. After turning the lights on (seeing nothing was there), explaining that they were pretend, telling he could call us, we finally got him to sleep in his room with a nightlight. It's pretty crazy - Evan had had fears before - but they are always more immediate (scary costumes, leaving the parents). This is the first time he's come up with something to fear on his own.
