Long Ago... Story Time with Sadie
Today while we were walking to Sadie's ballet class we walked by the same river. "Can you tell Maggie a story about... you know... what we're about to walk by?"
"Why don't you make up a story today." I suggested.
A few minutes later, as we approached the bridge, she began:
"Long ago in ancient days, legends tell of a time when mermaids brought their babies to swim and play. But then a crocodile came. And ate them all. Every single one. He was a very good swimmer. And not one of them was found. Ever again. And that is why we should never go down and swim in that river Maggie."
I glanced over at Maggie and saw her straining to stand up on the strollers foot board to get a better look over the railing at the river.
Somehow I have a feeling she's not yet been convinced.
