Philip was grumpy when I took away his half-finished Father’s Day craft project in the library. I was only trying to be helpful. He saw me putting a Curious George book in our bag, and he wanted to read it RIGHT NOW! I assumed he couldn’t hold the construction paper and yarn at the same time, so I offered to put them in the bag. There was crying.
That’s why I let Philip hold onto the book when we went to the park across the street. There had been additional tears because I had stopped at the car to drop off our bag before going to the park. I told Philip we were going to play, but he wanted to play at the park RIGHT NOW!
Once at the park, Philip wanted to continue to read his latest Curious George book. Even though it was hard to swing one-handed, he insisted. And then he read on every swing at the park. Even though it scared me that he was climbing the ladder to the slide one-handed, he insisted. And then he went down every slide at the park.
The only thing left for me to do was take these pictures. I guess you could say the book was so good, Philip just couldn’t put it down.
