Shrimp in the bed

Valerie is on this kick where she doesn't want to sleep by herself. Usually our night goes something like this: I lay down with her, read a story, say prayers, and stay until she falls asleep. Often I fall asleep and get up a few ours later and stumble to our bed. Around the same time most nights, usually 3am, I hear "mommy! where are you! Mommy... please come lay down!" Sometimes she'll go back to sleep, sometimes I have no choice but to lay with her.

A few nights ago, I answered my 3am call and crawled in her bed. About 5am I was awakend by this:
Val: "I Scared! Momma I scared!"
Me: "What's the matter?"
Val: "I don't like shrimp."
Me: "Mmmhmmm... ok."
Val: "there's shrimp in the bed!"
Me: "Oh ok.. throw them on the floor." as I throw "shrimp" on the floor.
Val: "No momma, they're over here!" points to the other side of the bed.
Me: "Ok... throw those on the floor. No more shrimp... go back to sleep."

I really would like to know what she was dreaming about, lol ! And every night since then, she tells me there's shrimp in her bed. What an imagination!!
