The Most Loved/Weird Children's Book Ever
I'm excited to jump on Ninja Mom's Character Assassination Carousel today! I've actually been standing next to it for, like, ever and it has never slowed down long enough for me to jump on it. Tara from You Know It Happens At Your House, Too was just on it with "Are you REALLY going to eat that?" She just kept smiling and laughing and waving while I waited for my turn with my hands in my pockets. I felt so awkward. She just kept going around and around and around and around and around and around. You can tell by the looks of that horse that it's no normal carousel. (I'm lying. One time Tara asked the carousel lady to slow it down so I could jump on but I then I got too freaked out by the flying arrows. I just stood there and cried.) The book that I picked to...assassinate (that just seems so violent, yes?)...was Love You Forever.
*Bends to dodge readers' thrown shoes (and one tomato) and the shoes of all the people who bought me this book at my previous baby showers*
I actually first talked about this book on my blog two years ago so the faithful readers of this blog (boy, how I love you guys) will recognize some of this post. Well, that is, if you have a good memory.
But, that mother is a little off her rocker. Can I get an Amen? Anybody? How about a deep grunt?
After sneaking into his room to rock him IN HIS SLEEP, she sings this song to him:
I'll Love You Forever,
As Long As I'm Living,
My Baby You'll Be.
Let me explain.
