Contractions are slowing down. Maybe.

They sure seem strong from an outsider’s perspective. But heaven knows when we’ll actually leave for the hospital.

I’m making a blog post just to stay busy and help calm my nerves. It’s either this or fix something around the house.

Here’s Jefferson’s new favorite book.

Try saying this passage:

Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees’ cheese freeze.
That’s what made these three free fleas sneeze.

Normally I read a book to him 2-3 times in a row. Not this one. Once a night is enough.

Here’s a copy of the text.

    And as for “Fox in Socks,” get a copy of it on tape (or CD or MP3 or whatever kids these days are using with their newfangled contraptions and their whatnot). This is what my parents did for me. I don’t ever remember them reading this particular book to me, but that tape-guy’s voice is still in my head, “Whose socks? Sue’s socks.”

      I’ll have to get a copy of that! I’ve read the book a dozen times. It is darn hard. I’d love to hear somebody else have a crack at it.

  3. I just read this aloud to myself from your link – I think I love it already 🙂

      Read the whole book aloud!

      • I did, I did! The entire text link! How can you not love:
        When beetles battle beetles in a puddle paddle battle
        and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle…
        …they call this a tweetle beetle bottle puddle paddle battle muddle.

        It’s epic poetry, I tell you, epic! [of the totally variety] 🙂
