bedtime stories...


So, every night Steve gets the boys' jammies on and reads to them. Sometimes I have seen him pull out his guitar and sing to them. He has strong opinions about the 'best' books to read. None of these 'baby' books. They have to tell a good story. The kids love it! Now here is the funny part...toddlers don't always cooperate with our great plans, right?! So I tease Steve that this is what the bedtime stories sound like:
-George was a good little monkey and always
-MATTHIAS DON'T KICK DAVID!!
-and always very curious. One day
-DAVID GET BACK HERE!!
-George saw a little white
-SIT STILL, DON'T GRAB THE BOOK!!
-bunny so he decided...
You get the picture! It is hilarious. I know the boys will have fond memories of their story time with daddy. And I never loved doing the dishes and straightening up the house so much!

What a magical picture! I'm laughing out loud because I can totally hear Steve reading and saying those things.

So cute! Anna is now at the place where her attention span will last through most children's stories. The boys, not so much...
