Telling Stories

We read to our kids all the time, especially at bed time. More often nowadays we tell each other bedtime stories before the kids go to sleep and we find it really fun. We would all gather in either Bianca or Nico's bed and each of us take turns telling a story at the foot of the bed. We make up stories that almost always begins with "Once upon a time" and end in "The End".

Bianca is getting good at making up her stories, and she sometimes tells the traditional fairy tales she's learned in school like Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Nico on the other hand just loves the attention when it's his turn to tell a story. Although we can't always understand him, we can make out his "Once time" and "The End". We're always delighted by our kids performances and how they seem to enjoy performing. Well, I suppose, that's what all parents say.

Awwww! That's so cute. Can I tell the story if ever I get there? I can tell the one about the guy with a hook for the hand, stalking campers on a dark and moonless night....

Mwa ha ha ha. Just kidding, guys. I really think it's a great thing you're doing with the kids.

Thanks Doms, we try our best, that's all we can hope to do.

And yes, I do scary stories sometimes, although the kids just laugh it off, while Nico tries to copy me when I do it, too! :D
