Jenny Allegro comes in to kiss Danielle goodnight. Danielle is lying on her bed, fully dressed, with Itaipu blasting away.

Jenny pulls off Danielle's sneakers, tucks her into bed without undressing her, takes 10 seconds to smoothly turn down the volume on the CD player, ejects the CD and puts it between the covers of Danielle's pink-and- purple-home-made-paper-favourite-CDs-giant-envelope that Danielle made at school last year, remotes the CD player to 6:00am 'Wake-up-with-Mozart' and tiptoes backwards from the room turning out the light as she goes.

And leaves the door slightly ajar so Danielle can see if she wakes up during the night.
