Then tonight happened.
My four year old daughter, Brennan, picked it for her bedtime story for the first time. My excitement was real. FINALLY! I would get to read this great story to my baby! I have asked her time and again to pick it, and she has always refused, favoring fairy tales and Disney princess stories and other such nonsense.. But tonight...TONIGHT will be the night!
I am Sam
Sam I am
That Sam I am...
"Why does he have angry eyes?"
Cuz he thinks Sam is annoying
That Sam I am
I do not like that Sam I am
Do you like green eggs and ham?
I do not like them, Sam I am.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
Would you like them here or there?
I would not like them here or there. I would...
"Why doesn't he just offer him something he DOES like?"
not like them anywhere. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam I am.
"WHY DOES THIS STORY KEEP REPEATING ITSELF???!"
(Exasperated) Cuz that is how it is written!
"Well that's dumb. Just give the guy what he wants already! Can we read 'Tangled' instead mommy?"
And so, I put my treasured childhood favorite back on the shelf, pull out the well-worn Disney princess book...
And read "Tangled" for the five millionth time.
