TV Education 101

Tonight I was reading the twins a book with pictures of all different kinds of animals. As is generally the custom, I pointed to each animal and asked, for example, "What does a lion say?" And the girls made the appropriate animal noise. We went through about ten pages of different animals and they got almost everything right on (although when I asked about the butterfly, Lucy just sang, "Butter-fly, butter-fly!" Could you die?) So then I turned the page and asked, "What does a fox say?" And both in unison, at the top of their lungs, they yelled,

"OH MAN!"

The three of us laughed very hard.

And then, to try and get more laughs, the girls turned to their favorite game of pretending to eat all the animal pictures as I acted shocked and exclaimed, "What? You can't eat a bear! Gross! Stop eating that frog! Yuck!"

See, Self? Sometimes bedtime CAN be fun and funny.

Oh I smiled and smiled at this! I have been able to be there to hear their animal noises---those smart little cuties. And I have also heard their Dora expressions---SO ADORABLE!! You are so blessed to have those beautiful children---and I MISS you all so much.

Ok, now I am crying again...

Logan and Seth have the cutiest way of saying "butterfly" as well. What is it with 2 year olds and "big" words that make them so fun to listen to?
