Pinky Promise?


These are some of Santi's favorite reads. I have started collecting Dr. Seuss books for him because the books are quite amusing to read out loud, even for myself. I like how the rhymes roll out of my tongue. Over and over again he asks me to read to him many times during the day. There are times when I get tired and tell him, "OK, this is going to be the last story now, pinky promise?"

I wasn't really sure if he was able to fully understand the concept because I have just introduced it recently. But he would grab my finger with his and comply each time. But today he saw this photo on one of the books...



...and said, "Mom, I want cake!"
I replied, "OK, I will buy you cake tonight."
Santi pulls out his finger and says, "Pinky promise?"

My heart takes a dip and melts! :*

Awww, Mon, that's so precious! :)

Where do you get your Dr. Seuss books? I've always wanted to collect for Matthew but the ones in National are expensive. Unless they're really pricey now?

You can buy cheap ones from the stores that sell used books. Their names escape me now but they are all over town! :)
