It happened again. Remember my post yesterday…laughing when you know you shouldn’t…it happened again today. We have a huge number of kid’s books and one of our favorites is the Sandra Boynton book Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaur!
As you can see, the book truly is well loved. The corners are peeling. The spine is worn on the edges. But, it’s been through three boys and we read it a lot.
This morning, Joey and Gabe were in the living room. As I came down the hall I heard them laughing and Gabe was saying “Don’t tell mom. Please don’t tell mom.” Well, y’all know there is no better way to get a parent’s attention than to say don’t tell them. So, I asked. Joey cracked up and said “You know that book Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaur! Well, Gabe was reading that page Dinosaurs singing a dinosaur song…
but instead, he said said ‘Vagina-saurs singing a vagina-saur song.'” I knew I shouldn’t laugh but I did. I laughed long and hard…and, Gabe now has his “song” on an unending loop.
Any clue how I can stop laughing when I shouldn’t?
