In His Own Words

Every night before bed time, Nicole or I (usually Nicole, since I put Abi to bed) reads Ben a story. Tonite, Ben wanted to read one to her. He chose Thomas & Friends – Really Useful Engines. According to Benjamin, it goes something like this…
Page 1: WOW! Choo-choo! Uh-oh!
Page 2: Choo-Choo! Head, teeth. Moo, uh-oh!
Page 3: Wooow! Stuck! Uh-oh!
Page 4: Thereitis! Moo! Bye!
Page 5: Thereitis, thereits, thereitis. Wow! Juice.
Page 6: Choo-choo! Moo, moo, moo. Bye!
Page 7 : Moo, moo, mooo, mmmmmoo, moo, MOOO!
Page 8:  Uh-oh! Bye!
Clearly if this were what the book actually said, it would be an instant bestseller among 1-2 year olds everywhere.

  1. Wait until he’s a bit older.. he’ll start figuring out other funny words to use like “brrrf”, “frappuuuul!” and “yummers!”
