Help! I've already read Goodnight Moon three times already.

One sheep, two sheep, three sheep, four. Jump, jump, jump? Since when do sheep jump? Five, six, seven. Surely there must be a faster way of counting sheep. Well, actually, the brain can’t just create a herd and expect to count it objectively. I’d just be coming up with some arbitrary number already determined by the preceding conjuration. It’s much easier to fall asleep when I have nothing to think about, but then I start thinking about thinking, and it would just save us a lot of trouble if I took some sleeping pills. Wait, why is it bright outside?
