the proposal.

Little Man,

I think I’ve reminded you nearly seven thousand times not to shout out when I’m talking. Especially during story time!! Story time is my favorite time of day and you talking while I’m reading is inexcusable.

┬áBut, today, you’re excused.

Today you said what can get you out of almost any kind of trouble.

While I was midsentence in a story about a hedgehog who stretched out a red wooly hat (?), you declared,

“For Christmas, I’m going to buy you two wedding rings!!”

What happens to a man between the ages of five and twenty-five that words like this just don’t come as easily?
