Here’s something NOT to read your kid before bedtime. I found this in one of my old journals…must have had some bad dreams recently.
Now I lay me down to dream
I pray to God I do not scream
For when the monsters come to eat
I will have safely tucked my feet
Beneath the blankets, safe and warm;
Protection from the coming swarm.
And when their teeth extend to bite
I’ll do my best to try and fight
Although I know they’ll drag me down
Under the bed without a sound.
