Yesterday, I read you 1,714 books. Actually, it wasn't 1,714 different books. It was about seven different books that added up to 1,714 times. And most of the books weren't stories. They were books of pictures that either you or I pointed to and I said the name. So I couldn't even act it out or sing it or assign new voices. Every time you handed me a book, you climbed your chubby body into my lap and snuggled in to listen to the most fascinating book in the world to you.
By the end of the day, I felt like I couldn't read (if you call it that) ONE MORE BOOK.
But then I thought -
There's going to be a day where I'd give anything for you to snuggle your body into my lap to listen to a book.
And there are moms out there who would do anything to get the opportunity to read their child one more book.
And there are people out there who would do anything to have a child to read a book to.
And I was humbled. And I would love to read you My First Word Board Book as many times as you want (and even more!).
