– They held each other

Furthermore, she claims that it was not unusual for a four-year-old to wake up early, then fall asleep on the floor between games.

“Looks like they found out tonight that they were going to climb into the playbox where they kept their stuffed animals. They kicked out all but a few. They were lying on their legs with their arms around each other. I want to believe they said ‘Good night, kill-kill’ and ‘Good-night, oh my sister”.
