Because apparently I do for Lily. Her favorite book at the moment is a random stow-away from my classroom library.
When we get to this page:
She points to the boy and says "MAMA'! Now, granted, I often wear jean shorts and rainbow socks and play with boomerangs... but... SERIOUSLY? If I needed a makeover show before...
Jeff doesn't help either. When he reads 'I like to play. I like music. I like the rainbow. etc.' ... he replaces the word 'I' on the boy's pages with 'your mom' and uses as much uncharacteristic enthusiasm as he can muster. 'YOUR MOM likes to play!'
When labeling the people in the illustration on the last page. Lily names 'girl' (left), 'mama' (right), and the dark haired lady with the bun... of course is 'nana.'
We're excited for Lukie's 2nd birthday party at Gymboree tomorrow. Gustav or no Gustav... we're going to be there --- giving Lily a glimpse of how the other half lives.
I'll post lots of photos of the fun!
