Bedtime story or not?

When my two were little we always made a big thing of a bedtime story, they used to get quite excited about it. My Mam when babysitting would spend hours reading a bedtime story and sometimes stories to the girls and we were never quite sure who out of the three of them enjoyed it most, I expect it was my Mam.

However my husband Chris did scar the girls for life when a kind Auntie bought them the Teddy Bears Picnic, it was a book that the song was made into the story with matching pictures to the song verse, he soon realised that he could sing it to them quicker than reading the story so whenever he had to put them to bed that was the book he reached for, whether they liked it or not. They still t this day cringe if they hear the song.

This Just One Story by Mo’s Digital Pencil evoked all my memories.

Isn’t she a sweetie?

My Nanna told me the most amazing stories, all made up but the way she told them had you imagining that you were there right in the middle of it all, I think she should have wrote a book and I reckon it would have been on the best sellers shelf.

What a sweet face, I don't think it would be possible to say no to her. The green goes well with her red hair. Pretty card.
