A Fish Out of Water

A Fish Out of Water is Tehya's current most favorite book. Ironically, it was always her dad's favorite when he was a kid. He liked it so much he went out bought it for her, and she of course loved it immediately. "When you feed a fish, never feed him a lot. So much and no more! Never more than a spot, or something may happen! You never know what." It's quite the lengthy book for a 19 month old to sit still for but most the time, she'll sit right in my lap listening and taking in all the pictures, engaged in the book till the end.

Tonight her dad was going to work (he works 10pm-6:30am) and she was sitting in the corner of her room "reading" this book, flipping through the pages. I told her she'd better go say buh bye to daddy because if he leaves without her knowing it, she'll look for him the rest of the time she's up (we are night owls) and holler to him. It's kind of sad. I took her hand and coaxed her up and led her to the door. She knew he was leaving and she's at the age where it shows that she don't want him to go and sometime she will protest it. So anyway tonight she came out with that book in her hand and as he was leaving and giving her hugs and kisses she's trying to get him to take the book, she wanted him to stay and read it to her. It was a cute but sad moment. She instantly jumped in my lap after he shut the door, I read her a couple pages of the book. She decided she wanted to nurse and fell asleep. =) Now here I am putting the memory in "stone".
