Most nights, after tucking BOY & GIRL in bed, I tell them a story as we sit together in the dark. It is a time when the imagination can wander. Lately, as I edge out the door...tired beyond reason, BOY has started his own ritual, his own story telling.
Mommy, Mommy, wait.... I have to tell you SOMETHING.
What do you have to tell me BOY?
A long, long, long time ago I went to a store and I ate all the food and all the people.
All the people?
... WOW, you must have been full.
I ate them ALL, had a BIG BURP and they flew out.
