Last night I got to choose the bedtime story, I'm pretty consistent with my selection, I almost always pick "How do Dinosaurs say Good Night?" - it's an amazingly illustrated story - a classic. Anyway, Avery asked if he could read it to Amelle and I, which I gladly agreed to. I then decided it would be fun for the kids if I acted it out while Avery read it - I was wrong, the only one I entertained with my grossly over-animated gestures was myself. Anyway...get to the point of the blog already...right?
The gem came at the very end of the book. Avery read, ...they tuck in their tails and whispered "good night!" and then busted out in laughter. I mean a really hardy belly laugh, "Mom isn't that funny, they whispered "Good Night!" They must've been like "Good Night!" he said in a whisper, but with all kinds of enthusiasm, because it was followed by an exclamation point, then he giggled and repeated it a few times, giggling in between each one until he had me laughing and trying to whisper "Good Night!".
...it's truly the simple things in life. Kids are so awesome, it reminds me what an honor it is to be a parent.
