Some of my best memories from childhood are when I used to read The Berestain Bears books. I absolutely loved them! So naturally, when Miranda came along, I made sure to have a couple of those on hand to read to her.
Last night, we were reading The Berenstain Bears’ New Pup, which we have already read dozens of times. When we got to the page where the little puppies are laying with the mommy dog, Miranda exploded with “awww…they’re so cute!” Of course I agreed, that’s what we say when we see cute little animals!
Then she said, “The mommy doggie has lots of babies; but you only have one. Don’t worry, Mommy, you will have another baby in a couple of seconds.” I smiled and started to read the next page, and…wait…what?????
