bedtime stories at the bookstore
after a stop at the petshop, a supper of noodles
and mama and daddy wanting coffee, we stopped
at a bookstore to read bedtime stories.
oh, eliza’s delight as she found her latest obsession
i realized that i HATE reading books that are based on tv shows
i find them tedious and annoying and wrong
i tried to lure her in with other pink books (that in itself is a stretch!)
seriously, right here she is gawking at the shelf of dear dora
but like candy in the check-out aisle,
dora, diego and a wealth of other princesses were at toddler-height
in a 3 non-dora:1 dora ratio, i released and read.
it is nice to practice my spanish
and at least it wasn’t some blond white princess
notice the book hiding under my leg…that one was not read
dear micah and naomi were there too…glad to be in their own book worlds
coming in to read the latest mo willems book knuffle bunny too…. ahhhhhh.
