“I see Monchichi coming towards me.”
“Monchichi, Monchichi, what do you see?”
“I see a sucker, I mean Mommy, smiling at me.”
“Mommy, Mommy what do you see?”
“I see the same damn book he’s bringing to me.”
“What’s wrong Mommy, you don’t seem happy?”
“I’m gonna lose my mind and it won’t be pretty.”
“Don’t you want to read this great story?”
“I already have, times thirty three!”
“Red Birds and Yellow Ducks are spinning around me, purple cats and green frogs, as far as the eye can see.”
“But you are worth it, my firstborn baby”

Funny! I know that book so well I used to recite it to my son in the dark when he awakened in the middle of the night. Great for those early readers though…my first graders used to fight over that one cause they could “read” it.
Lol, Brown Bear just happens to be a current favorite in my house these days. I am sick of it but not as much as I was of Moo Ba La La La, my first baby’s fav! And yeah, you’re right on, that’s what love does, it rereads the same dang story as many times as they want to hear it.
