We hope to instill the love for reading to Spud as early as we can, and so started reading to her several weeks ago. Never mind if she understands jack-all! Of course, considering how unpredictable she can be, we can only read to her when she is in a fairly good mood.
Wow! Said the Owl happened to be the very first book we picked out for Spud at the store even before she was born. I reckon, we either did not read the book first, or probably forgot how the story went, for when I started reading it out loud to Spud, I wanted to whack myself on the head!
It turned out that of all the books we could have bought, we bought one about a curious little owl who would not sleep at night like most owls do. As it is, Spud’s already a chronic cat-napper and refuses to nap in the day. I fear she has it in her head to follow the example of this little owl. I love owls to death, but I certainly will not appreciate it if Spud decides to get into the habit of an owl!
I think we should stop reading this book to her. We ought to put it away, otherwise I fear this book might just be severely detrimental to our health.
