Conversation Before Nap

Sweet Girl: Mommy, could we read The Flopsy Bunnies before nap?

Me: Sure, sweetie. I thought you might want to read one of your new books from the library, but we can wait and read one of those after nap.

S: Can't we read both?

M: No, Flopsy Bunnies is pretty long and it's getting late.

S: Can we please tell Beatrix Potter not to write such long stories when it's getting late?

LOL! Shame on Beatrix for being so long-winded! Pretty sure we're going to rent Miss Potter this week; we've been meaning to for quite a while. My grandma even recommended it, and she never watches movies...

Oh, you're going to love Miss Potter! It quickly made my all-time favorites list. Just a wonderful film, and deeply, poignantly romantic. Ewan McGregor is a marvel in this one, and so is Rene Zellweger. I love how it showcased Beatrix' work in conservation too. Can't wait to see your review!

And yes indeed, Beatrix could be quite long-winded! ;-)
