Has Daddy finally snapped? Nope. He’s just reading a bedtime story.

4 Oct

Seabass’ favorite book is currently Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea, and it’s no surprise as to why.  Jumping into leaves, devouring a bowl of spaghetti, dive-bombing grown-ups, and of course ROARING are some of the activities that comprise the narrative.  While it’s super entertaining for Seabass to listen to, I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t fun to read, too.  Nothing beats a good ROAR!! at the end of a long day.

A few nights ago, I let Jake put Seabass down for the night.  As I wandered the house in Hunched Over Pick-up Mode following a rambunctious day with Seabass, I overheard the voice of my dear husband yelling something unintelligible in Seabass’ room.  At first, I imagined the worst. But as I put my ear to the door, I realized he was reading good ol’ Dinosaur vs. Bedtime and decided to capture it on film should I ever need to prove that Jake is completely nuts beneath that calm and collected façade.

Technical note: You’re gonna want to turn up the volume on this one.

    Ha. I may have to get this book. Though I don’t think I’ll roar as good as Jake.
