Bedtime Moment

Posted in Books, Favorite Quotes, Humor, Just Life at 3:24 am by catsinboxes

While putting this child to bed, we had a little conversation.

Cowboy:  “Can you sing Zeus?”

Me -blankly-  “Zeus?”

Cowboy:  “Yes, you know at the piano, that book.”

Me -wondering the connection between big purple songbook and D’Aulaires’ Greek mythology-

“Can you sing it for me?”

Cowboy:  “I don’t remember . . . you know ZEUS.”

Me -light gradually dawning- “Is it . .. Oh Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me?”

Cowboy:  “Yes!!!”
