‘Tell me a story with an animal in it.’ #parenting

This is the long weekend where you catch up with old friends, and family, isn’t it? It’s Memorial Day weekend, and everyone who’s not at the beach is blogging. OK, not really, but you know. I like thinking about being at the beach but not on days when it’s packed.

My son likes it when we tell him stories at nighttime, but mine, apparently, aren’t intriguing enough. I started in on one about how I planted a peach tree in my back yard in Michigan, back in the 80s, and how cool it was to revisit and actually see that it’d grown taller than me! And just as I was getting into the wonderment of this, he cuts in.

“No.”

“No?”

“I want a story with an animal in it.”
