Luke was up in the middle of the night, having had to pee. Despite being six, he knew when to keep quiet, he had learned that very quickly because he had three younger siblings and when they got woken from a nap, they were not pleasant!

After washing his hands, he started making his way back to his bedroom. Because the hallway didn't have a nightlight like the bathroom did, he had to grope the wall in order to not trip and fall. Suddenly, he heard crying from the little ones' bedroom.

Despite wanting to go to bad, his older brother instinct kicked in and he quietly made it to their, room, carefully opening the door. Young Lynn was sleeping soundly in his racecar bed. But even by the light of their Fozzie Bear nightlight, he could tell that Linka was wide awake, leaning up to the bars of her crib, crying for attention. It was almost a miracle she didn't wake her roommate.

"Hey, what's the matter Linka? Can't sleep?" Luke asked his baby sister, as he walked over to her crib, but then he stepped on something unusually soft. He looked down at his feet and saw Bun-Bun, Linka's prized possession under his foot.

"Oh look, Bun-Bun fell down," said Luke, who bent down to pick up the plushie, he offered it back to Linka, hoping that might entice her to go back to sleep. But she just stretched her arms out suggesting she wanted him to pick her up.

"Oh, you want uppy?" he asked. She nodded, he obliged and carried her and Bun-Bun to the rocking chair that was stationed in the little one's room in case a parent or older sibling had to stay there with them for whatever reason. He held the toddler close to his chest, she embraced him back, tears still in her eyes. Then Luke got an idea.

"Christopher Robin and I walked along

Under branches lit up by the moon

Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore

As our days disappeared all too soon

But I've wandered much further today than I should

And I can't seem to find my way back to the wood"

Linka seemed to be enjoying the song, and she wasn't crying anymore, and it looked as though she might fall back asleep. Luke smiled as he continued singing.

"So help me if you can, I've got to get

Back to the house at Pooh corner by one

You'd be surprised there's so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive

Chase all the clouds from the sky (chase the clouds from above)

Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh"

Now Linka was fast asleep in her older brother's arms. Her arms meanwhile were still clutched onto his chest. Luke realized that if he got up to put her back in her crib she might wake back up, and that didn't seem like a good idea.

"What the heck, sleeping with a baby on one's chest actually seems like a good idea," thought Luke before he drifted off to sleep.

Nine years later…

Eleven-year-old Linka had taken a little late-night trip to the bathroom. This was the hour when home was actually quiet. The shadows, the peace, the silence, at night, the house seemed foreign to her. She was walking very quietly when she heard crying from the room the two youngest members of her family shared. Her big sister instinct kicked in and she went to investigate.

Levi had headphones on, listening to heaven knows what to help him sleep. But Leon, he was kneeling up against the bars of his crib, crying.

"What's wrong Leon? Did you have a bad dream?" she asked the baby as she picked him up, first smelling him to see if he needed a diaper change (luckily he didn't). Leon hugged his big sister, still crying. She walked over to a rocking chair that had practically become a hand-me-down over the years and sat down in it. Then she began to sing.

"Christopher Robin and I walked along

Under branches lit up by the moon

Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore

As our days disappeared all too soon

But I've wandered much further today than I should

And I can't seem to find my way back to the wood"

Leon had now stopped crying, and looked up at Linka with appreciative eyes.

"Oh, do you like that? Luke used to sing that me when I was little," she then continued.

"So help me if you can, I've got to get

Back to the house at Pooh corner by one

You'd be surprised there's so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive

Chase all the clouds from the sky (chase the clouds from above)

Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh"

Now Leon was fully asleep. Linka decided to follow suit, realizing it would be futile to get up.

"It's nice sleeping with a baby on one's chest," she thought before slipping off to dreamland. Luke had watched the whole scene from the shadows with a smile. He tiptoed over to the bedroom closet, grabbed a blanket from inside and carefully draped it over his younger siblings before going back to bed himself.
