As we were getting the kids ready for bed one night, I noticed Dinosaur sitting on the edge of his, wearing a Santa hat and a pensive expression.
ME: Anything wrong, sweetie?
DINOSAUR: ‘I spwang from my bed,’ Mommy, ‘to see what’s the matter.’
“Twas the Night Before Christmas” was THE story for the children this Christmas, thanks a good deal to Grandma having given them a copy of the story that is a recorded book with her voice reading it. Dinosaur has about half the story memorized, with a few addendums of his own.
DINOSAUR: “With a wittle old dwiver, so wivewy and quick, I knew in a moment, it must be Saint Nickawuss.”
I am so going to miss his little vocal idiosyncrasies as he gets older. On the other hand, I guess it wouldn’t sound as cute when he is seventeen. 😉
