That husband of mine... making me laugh as he reads to the kids their bedtime story.

Tom is reading Garfield's Shape Search (a shorter book than normal to get the kids in bed more quickly). He likes to change the words in books to see how Lukas protests (Lukas ALWAYS protests). Usually he replaces the names of characters with Lukas and Natalie, and the name of cities with our city and cities around us.

Tonight, instead of "a circle, a square, a triangle and a star", Tom started out, "a dodecahedron..."

Of course, Lukas immediately protested, "No, that's not what it says!"

Now you know one of the reasons why large words sometimes come out of Lukas' mouth and he has no idea what they mean.
