One of my favorite times of day is when I’m putting Adam to bed and reading to him. He’s drowsy, I’m tired, and we get to have a little cuddle while we read. Sometimes, Austin joins us and we have an even sweeter time together.
I read Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, which was one of Austin’s all time favorites. It’s about a donkey named Sylvester, who finds a magic pebble. Through an unfortunate mishap, Sylvester is separated from his parents for awhile, which makes them all sad, but they are reunited at the end and realize that their family being together is what they all wish for. It’s a very sweet little book, which if you haven’t tried, I highly recommend.
At the end of the book, Adam said, “That defin-ly is not a good book.” I said, “Why?!” Austin overheard and said, “Adam! How could you not like that book? It’s so good!” And Adam said, “Too much donkey. I like a little bit of donkey, but not so much donkey.”
There’s only so much donkey anyone should be expected to endure.
