When he goes to bed, his daddy reads him a story... not your average 2 1/2 year old bedtime story, but stories like Moonshot (Apollo 11) and recently, Johnny Tremain. He does read the more average bedtime story, like Noah's Ark, sometimes. Benjamin will tell you all about the astronauts - Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, who peed in a bag! He told me that Johnny Tremain was, "really sharp!" Well, not too long ago on one of my trips down there, I asked Benjamin if he wanted to sleep in Mimi's bed and I'd read him a story.
He did...and we did... I think we read "Monster Tomatoes".... but Benjamin was more interested in looking at the pictures of my phone...and then taking pictures with my phone!
Now when I go down, Benjamin will usually say he's going to sleep in Mimi's bed... I love it!
This was what was happening here, only it wasn't bedtime...
but he had told me he wanted to sleep in 'Mimi's bed.'
Sometimes, the video is going at just the perfect time!
"Beddy-bye"... I haven't heard that expression in so long!
