I think I'd make a good mom...

I think that I'd make a good mom just because I'd read to my children. No, this isn't me telling you all I'm having a baby. I realized that I read A LOT to Emmy. She is probably one of the best versed doggies around. From Eudora Welty to JK Rowling, she's heard a little bit of pretty much everything that I've read since we got her. It started on the first day that we got her. She was pretty freaked out so I read her The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brian. I figured that her mommy's voice would sooth her. Now when I read to her she completely flattens out and falls asleep. Even her cousin Sweet Potato Pie relaxed (well he's always relaxed) when I read to him. They fell asleep together to John Katz's A Good Dog. So purely on the basis of my reading aloud to my little dog-ter (daughter), I'd make an excellent mom. Maybe this is why she's so smart!

I went to bed last night at 5 30AM so this thought popped up out of my delirium. I haven't even finished all of the reading I've been assigned. I pulled a Hermione and read/wrote for seven hours straight and I'm still not done. Aiya.

You'd make a great mom...and not just because you read to our dog-children. =o)
