“Mom, do you think you could tell Dad’s stories?”
“Uh, I don’t think so. Only Dad knows Dad’s stories. Why? You don’t like my stories?”
“Well, Dad’s are just more . . . interesting.”
Simon did go into a little more detail as to why Micah’s stories are more interesting than mine. It sounds like he doesn’t like the episodic nature of my stories. He prefers Micah’s serial storyline. And also the fact that things actually happen in Micah’s stories.
I don’t blame him. I know Micah’s stories are better. But I was kind of surprised to be called out about it. Those boys seemed so excited about Robbie the Egg/Chick (she hatched!) that I thought they were willing to let it slide.
Not so. I’ve pretty much been fired as the bedtime story-teller.
I was going to say, “Their loss,” but really, it’s nobody’s loss. In fact. I think it’s pretty much a win all around.
