Bedtime Storlies...uh, I mean Stories

Alarik loves to snuggle up with a book. Thankfully he's already branched out and chosen a few more that he likes, but his first favorite is Time for Bed by Mem Fox.  He loves to make whisper noises when I whisper the line "but don't tell a soul" and to shout "PUPPY" when we turn to the page where momma dog tells baby puppy that he has to go to sleep.

Scott told Jesse a few nights ago that he couldn't wait to learn to read because he wanted to read to Alarik.  Jesse told him not to wait then and to get working on it.  After school the next day, when I asked how his day went, he said "Fine but I wanted to learn to read and we didn't get to that yet."  Hee, hee, hee!

Since we all know Time For Bed by heart now, he was able to snuggle up and "read" to Alarik a little anyway.  Oh the joy when they got to the puppy page!

It's been getting chilly at night here in Northern MN so Jesse dug out some warmer pjs and when he put this pair on Alarik, the kid couldn't stop looking down and checking himself out.  He was mesmerized by the moose on the feet.

Scott is still toughin' it out in his tank top, but he and Bekah both love "zip-jammies" as they call them.  When they wear them they slide feet first on their bellies down our carpeted stairs as fast as they can go.  It makes quite a racket and you'd think it would hurt, but they love it!  If you don't want rug burns, zip-jammies are the only thing to wear when performing this stunt.

Bekah has been a bear in the mornings to get up for school and she always claims that she didn't sleep well.  Must be all the pink in her room keeping her awake.  You think?  She is all about chapter books now that she's advanced enough to read them and young enough to still think it's super-cool to have a chapter book.  We finished up Little House in the Big Woods a few weeks ago and haven't started a new one yet.  Any suggestions?
