A scene from my house this morning…

Uncle Pete: You are a cutiepie!

The ACN smiles.

Uncle Pete: Is Uncle Pete a cutiepie?

The ACN: Yeeeah.


Uncle Pete: Are you just saying that because I am making your breakfast?

The ACN: Yeah!

Uncle Pete: Grrrrrrrr.

The ACN busts out in hysterical laughter.


For those who have been following the saga…

Despite the many hours I spent writing it for her, and the many hours my cartoonist buddy spent illustrating it, she still won’t let me read “Molly Moose” to her!

I ask her at story time.

She shakes her head “No.”

I make a sad face.

She giggles and giggles.

My sister says, “If it’s any consolation, she won’t let me read it to her at home either.”

Then SHE cracks up laughing.


The ACN has decided that I am a teddy bear today.

    tell her you want to read the book alone, that she can’t be there for it.

    i guarantee she’ll want a piece of the action then…

    Jazz: Ha! I think you may be completely right on that one. Going to give it a whirl for tonight’s story time. Chicks…

    jazz is a genius. i was totally gonna suggest that. make yourself a special snack or something that only people who want to read that book get. being afraid of missing out is a surefire way to get a kid to participate. that and bribes.

    sara: The twerp is completely unbribeable. Once she makes up her mind about something, that is it. (Apparently I was like that as a kid.)
