Kids are just funny

Endsley Givhan Bolen submitted this dialogue with her son, John, age 7, who was having trouble sleeping in his bed:

John: Mom you don’t understand! I can’t fall asleep no matter what I do!!

Endsley: John, you have to sleep in your room in your bed. You can do this! Just lie very still and you will fall asleep.

John: I would ask if I could play with a small toy for one minute to help me fall asleep but this is the ONLY thing in my room I have to play with!!!

Endsley said he was holding up a string of dental floss.

There are now 139 children enrolled in the Covington County Imagination Library, which distributes a book each month to every child enrolled from birth to kindergarten.

This week, the library welcomes four wee ones to the Imagination Library roll, including Lenard C. Smithart, Ceara T. Oliver, Johnathan L. Rudd and Aidan J. Merritt, all of Andalusia; and Bella G. Roberson, Florala.
