A Quick Pick and another Quick Cute Kid Story
Am in between a Suzuki violin rehearsal and dinner with friends tonight (Trader Joe’s made the dessert I’m bringing! Aren’t they sweet?!) so I need to keep today’s post fairly short.
First, this kid.
Except it’s not enough. I have to say more, lest I forget the joyful torments of this age. We brought out the tin can stilts for him and his brother.
“Nicky, would you like to walk on them?” I asked, quite sure he’d accept such a perilous venture.
“No, I want to BANG on them!”
And he approached, swinging a croquet mallet.
Which brings me to my quick review, a.k.a. my “Quick Pick.” The book Mortimer by Robert Munsch is a family favorite (I wonder why?) and is where I got the title for this post.
Here’s a cute live action video.
Enjoy! And watch out for swinging croquet mallets.
