I had "Moo Moo Brown Cow" and "Good Night Moon" memorized. Read them so often to the kids.
Lisa L.I chuckled after I read John's comment about how he knows baked beans. I thought of HDT's green bean field experiment in "Walden." He claimed to know (green) beans.
JenretI suppose Mike was "asking for it" because he didn't walk to the changing room and actually trusted his family. Sorry, it wasn't hilarious. In no case is intentionally exposing your child (especially against his will) a good punchline and I don't think this one could have been saved by nuances like eye movement, shrugs, knowing smiles, or reassuring gestures. People are so quick to point out "in my day" and then in the same breath, complain about how horrible everything is now. How do you think it became this way?
MonicaMy son's favorite book was "Cars and Trucks". It's been more than 30 years and I can still recite some of it. At the age of three he impressed my cousin with his ability to "read" because he had that book so well memorized.
Jan C, Henderson, NVI remember reading 'A is for Apple, B is for Bear' to my daughter when she was two, and then saw her point to the big letters in the newspaper headlines and say them. Obviously a genius.
