I'm the Messiest Thing in this Ocean
Well, I would be if I lived in the ocean, but instead "I'm the messiest person that lives in this house!" If you don't know Kevin Sherry's books about the giant squid yet, you may not hear these comparison's in the giant squids low booming voice (read perfectly by Miss Sarah of the Issaquah and Sammamish libarary storytime fame). But at our house these days, I like to bellow my challenges to the little ones in my deepest echo-y voice- "I'm the fastest toy picker-upper", "I have the cleanest teeth in the ocean", "I give the tightest hugs in the ocean". These are met with the comeback that tops all comebacks,"No, I am the . . . ." And works everytime, well, until next week when we'll be on to the next strategy for getting them to do what we want.
