A boy's imaginative fantasies about cows run wild at bedtime, but Mom helps put things in perspective.
Henry looks out the window to check for cows because he is afraid that one night a cow might come right in through his bedroom window. Mom reassures him: they live on the third floor of an apartment building; a cow could not get in very easily. But Henry disagrees--he's sure cows love crashing through windows, and he can think of many ways a cow could get in: dressing up as a pizza deliver person, walking a tightrope from the building near by, or sneaking up the wall! With a little bit of logic, Mom finds a way to cure Henry of his cow problem.
