Momma went to Grandma’s house today to get ready for Ace’s big birthday party tomorrow, so it was a guys house today. Me and Ace doing what guys do best…a whole lotta nothing. 😀
Nah, we did more than nothing. We spent most of the afternoon outside swinging on the swingset, throwing the ball, and playing in the sandbox. We went for a walk and watched the birds sing back by the creek. It was a great Dad/Son boding day…
After dinner I gave Ace a bath and then started to read him a story before bedtime. The book was about two birds that found an egg in their nest…it was not their egg, but they decided to sit on it anyways.
About three pages into the book Ace got up off my lap and ran over and started playing with one of his toys. Yup, the book was soooo exciting that even a two year old lost interest after three pages…
But guess who kept on reading…to himself. You guessed it. I found myself so mystified by what actually might be in that egg that I kept reading the book to myself…out loud and all energetic like I was reading to Ace.
As I flipped through the pages of the book in suspense of what was in the egg I thought to myself…”Why the hell are you still reading this?”…but, I couldn’t stop.
Maybe it’s an overdose of Moose and Zee, the Backyardigans, Dora, and Pinky Dinky Doo that have brought my judgment on what is entertaining to an all time low. You ever found yourself excited when Wonder Pets comes on the TV so that you can sing along with the song? Please say yes… 😀
