So last Thursday evening, we were getting the kids ready for bed, and
it was a bit late. It was time for a story, but because it was late,
neither of us wanted to read, say, War and Peace. Of course Jacob picks out a rather lengthy
book. So instead of reading the whole thing, I read the front cover,
then flipped the still-closed book over and said, "The end." Jacob thought
that was the funniest thing ever. He told me to read it again, more slowly.
So I read the front cover, opened it up to the first page, read one sentence,
then flipped the book shut and said, "The end." Same reaction from Jacob; hysterical
laughter, then an urgent request to read it again, "more slowly". We did this
about 5 times, each time reading a sentence from one more page. It was just a
magical moment, really, the kind that I wish could last a lot longer than it
does. So I needed to record it somewhere -- here ya go.
