The kids and I read a lot of books. We love books. If the kids are going to get a bedtime story, it is going to be from me. If I'm at a meeting in the evening and Hubby puts them to bed himself, he will tell them that I'll come and read them one as soon as I get home (he really should stop doing this because they almost always fall asleep before I arrive, and they remember in the morning and somehow I'm the bad guy.)
Tertius doesn't have a very big
attention span, though, and doesn't always snuggle up and listen with us. But
apparently he has payed attention enough to know that Mommy is the official book
Yesterday while I was reading to the girls, Hubby happened
to be sitting nearby listening while Tertius played. I needed to blow my nose
or something so when I put down the book, Hubby picked it up and kept
reading in my place.
Apparently Tertius thought this was ridiculous. He
started making gestures and saying things that obviously communicated that Daddy
was silly and that Mommy was supposed to be doing the reading.
