MARIANNE STORIES #9

You can tell by this story just how much the children love my friend, Marianne.

April 15
Little Theresa saw me sitting at a table in the Children's Dept. reviewing my staff's timesheets. she decided I needed a break from my work, and told me she would read ME a story for a change. She took the pen out of my hand, put the cap on it and placed it on the table. "Now, we are ready to listen to a story." She read me an entire Mr. Putter and Tabby book, laughing at all the hidden humor and asking me if I got it as well. She made sure to hold the book up exactly as I do and to show me all the pictures. It was a very charming moment!

  2. Kathy, I love this story. All kids should be so sweet. LOL. I'll tell you a story of our granddaughter. She was four, I read Sleeping Beauty to her and on the last page, I said "the end". She asked me, "Nana are you sure that's how it goes?" I said , "yes, why do you ask? " She said..and I am not making this up...she said,"Where were all the blah-blah-blahs?" Her father said he got tired of reading it so much , so he would go, Blah-blah-blah thru lots of it. I almost wet my pants from laughing. Wishing you a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  4. I love children. Just had a visit with two of my great grandchildren yesterday and what a great time I had. Yep..I'm glad I had all seven of mine. Would do that part of my life all over again.
    What an adorable little girl.. :)

  5. We were just reading about Mr. Putter's eating too many of Mrs. Teaberry's Jelly-rolls, and so he and Tabby took a long walk around the neighborhood to look at the stars. It was in Sweetpea's reading book with an assortment of stories from all over the world, so I did not know it was a series. We'll go looking for more on our Friday visit.

    I do love looking in on you, and am always so glad to see your light come on on the sidebar. It's also lovely that three of the above friends are friends of mine, also. Like a little neighborly chat.

    1. I have quite a few "shared" friends in the blog world. Isn't that nice? Too bad we can't all have a big meeting somewhere where we could see each other in person. Have a good weekend!
