I had a bad dream and it was very scary, so I tried to go sleep with my big brother. I grabbed my best puppy and blankey and jumped out of bed real fast, so the monsters couldn’t get me.
I stopped at the bottom of his big ladder, and looked waaay up there to see if he was asleep or not. I was gonna climb up, but his bed was just too high up there.
I decided I’d try my baby brother’s room instead. I tippy toed down the hallway and into his room. His pillow was all drooly and yucky and I think he forgot to use the potty before he went to bed. I could NOT sleep there!
So, I had to go to Mommy and Daddy’s room. I knew Mommy said I have to be a big boy now, but there was nowhere else I could go. Honest! There were monsters under my bed. Big brother’s bed was floating high up in the sky and baby brother’s bed was all covered in baby slobber. I had to sleep with Mommy and Daddy.
I really quite turned that door thingy and opened it up really slow so I wouldn’t wake anybody up in there. Then I tippy toed my mostest quiet over to Mommy’s side of the bed. I was very scared that she would make me go back to my own room with the monsters, so I just stood there thinking ‘bout what I was gonna do.
Then Mommy’s eyes popped wide open and she did a little scream. Her air was hot on my face and it smelled kinda stinky. I don’t know why she screamed. It was just me. That’s when I got the thought that maybe one of them monster guys had followed me!
I jumped up on Mommy’s big bed super fast and climbeded right over her tummy. Her face kinda hurt my belbow, but I didn’t mind too much. I was finally safe--right under the big, fluffy covers between Mommy and Daddy. Ooh yeah. Now I could go back to sleep—if Daddy would stop making all those snorry noises in my ear!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I came across this tonight, and I got a really good chuckle out of it. My favorite sentence was this one: "I jumped up on Mommy’s big bed super fast and climbeded right over her tummy." What a picture!
