He's Totally Not Dead

We've been reading Go, Dog. Go! every night for a couple of weeks, and Q wants to count the groups of dogs on the first page.

There are three green dogs.
Three blue dogs.
Six pink dogs
Four yellow dogs.
One white dog and . . .

"What's that?" sez Q, pointing to a small dog still sleeping in the middle of the bed.

"It's a light blue dog," replies Mama, just as Daddy chimes in, "Maybe it's a white dog that died. Look, the rest of them are jumping up, but he's still lying there."

Now, we have to stifle our snickers whenever we get to that page.

OMG! This is Jimmy's favorite bedtime book right now...
I won't be able to look at that page without wondering now... and chuckling quietly to myself.
Personally I think he's faking it to sleep in, not that any of us around here have done that *ahem*, especially on weekends.
I wonder if I should tell the hubs, it would creep him out!
Which is almost worth it in itself!

Maybe we'll go back to The Color Kittens.

I think he is PLAYING dead, so he can get that whole big bed to himself after all those other dogs go.

Haha! That's hilarious, and fitting. After all, the dog is light blue - he could be a dead dog.

I'm never going to look at that page the same way now.
