Every night, part of the our bedtime routine is for Nicole to sing to each of our children and for I to either read or tell them each a story. Often, I tire of rereading the same collection of Dr. Seuss or other previously read short stories so I’ll recite an impromptu story of my own. After having done this for a year or so (the impromptu versions that is) I’ve decided to write them up as an archive for the kids to have when they are older. I don’t claim to be a master story teller, nor do I expect any kind of consistency between them. This is yet a means to appease their ever-growing imaginations as well as make it an enjoyable 10 minutes for me.
Enjoy the first one.
