Why are my kids going to bed after I do? Am I that old?
After I asked myself that question years ago, I realized that we aren't that old...they are that young. We know better, now. Plus, we've seen all the late night TV and as long as they stay in the house we can always check on them when we get up to go to the bathroom.
donavan, I bought that book when I spied it at my local record store...thinking about all the books I read to my kids night after night. (I did that with love and much joy. I continue that with my Baby Grands. I'm always a sucker for just one more book, please.) I took the book home and read it to my daughter who was in her 20s at the time. We laughed our butts off. Next time I saw my son, I read it to him and we laughed our butts off. When I read it to my then husband, we REALLY laughed our butts off because that's the way he talks. I wish I was the person who wrote that book. The mere thought of that book brings a big grin to my face.
