Overheard during bedtime stories...

We are working the way through all the Winnie-the-Pooh stories with my toddler and preschooler before bed.  Our bedtime ritual is: jammies, toothbrushing, allergy meds, family prayers, bedtime stories.  Although at our house bedtime stories are called "bednight stories" and "Pooh stories."

Last night I was reading Chapter 4 in The House at Pooh Corner where Pooh is trying decided where to go next.  He thinks about going to Rabbits because Rabbit always offers "a little bit of something" and then Pooh said, "I'm not getting any fatter, but perhaps the hole at Rabbits is growing smaller." 

I hear off in the distance, a whisper.  It's my husband to my eldest daughter, "That sounds like my pants."  Since none of us could keep our composure at that point, Pooh stories were done for the night. 

This morning, my eldest daughter asked her dad, "Are your pants growing smaller?"  He deserved that one.


  1. Shame on you, shrinking your husband's pants like that.

  2. I think it's because I'm like Rabbit, always offering a little bit something...
