Love story


Strange how even with DVDs and computers, children like being told stories for their imagination.

I read him bedtime stories from books. But the wife goes one better. She tells him stories.

The wife and the boy sit on a rug in our bedroom. This is a magic carpet on which they fly off to see characters he knows from the television or books. The wife will tell a story about the character while he sits staring at her. Sometimes he suggests the character and what's going on; sometimes he wants her to tell him. When the story is finished they wave goodbye and fly off to meet another. He loves this and will sit enraptured until the wife is quite hoarse.

Why not give it a go yourself????

Tell him about the tough old scotsman whose heart melts away everytime he sees a photo of a gorgeous wee boy......
