Once Upon A Time...

Mere moments ago, while putting Mia to bed...

Me: Why don't you tell me a story.
Mia: Okay. Once upon time, old woman walking through the forest. The end.
Me: That's great. Tell me another one?
Mia: Okay. Once upon time, old woman, little boy and daddy walking though forest. Now you're in bed with me. The end.
Me: Another good one.
Mia: Thank you.
Me: How about another?
Mia: Just one more.
Me: Okay.
Mia: Once upon time, old woman walking through forest. I love you daddy. The end.
Me: Perfect.
Mia: Perfect! No more stories. The end.

My youngest (who is a few days younger than mia) wouldn't dream of telling me stories. She's too busy screaming at bedtime, "No! I no wanna go to bed! I wanna hang out!!!"

Mia should, perhaps, compile a book of bedtime stories?

She's a good story teller. When's she getting her blog?

That is perfect.

That's completely adorable.

Just talked to my older son. His youngest son was born about an hour ago.

Zachary something (leave it to Jim to not give me the whole name) 9 lbs, 1 oz. Ouch!!

Mom and baby fine - I'll probably have a picture in the next couple of days.

Suuuuuupwe cute!

I remember when my friend's cousin was about two, two and a half, and he would always want to read you books. He would sit there and describe the pictures - "The lady has a balloon, and it's red, and there's grass, and there's trees, and then there's a puppy" - it was great. :)

"I love you Daddy" (or Mommy) is probably the greatest story int he history of the universe.

There must have been something in the water yesterday, because my daughter was quite sweet to me as well... I even wrote about it today at my place.

Aww. That's insanely cute. This is such a fun age, isn't it, when you can actually have little conversations with them?

The kid is totally going to be a best selling author one day.
