Instead of the usual stories I've read a hundred times, last night I decided to break out the nursery rhyme book that Jaxon's Granny gave to him. Here is a conversation between Jaxon and I during our first attempt at a bedtime rhyme.
Me: "Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet..."
Jaxon: "Little Miss Muffet?"
Me: Yes. Little Miss Muffet. "Eating her curds and whey."
Jaxon: Curds and hay?
Me: Whey. It's whey not hay silly! "Along came a spider..."
Jaxon: A spider! Ahhhh! Daddy's scared of spiders. Are you Mom?
Me: Only the really big ones! "... and sat down beside her,"
Me: Yes Jaxon?!
Jaxon: Do you like sharks?
Me: I'm scared of those! Would you like to finish the rhyme?
Jaxon: Oh, shore! (He pronounces "sure", shore!)
Me: "... and frightened Miss Muffet away!"
Me: Yes Jaxon!
Jaxon: Can I go watch wrestling w/ Dad?
