Friday's Fond Memory
This picture makes me smile for so many reasons. I am Carolyn's age and my brother is about Julia's age...and this scene plays out now at our house all the time. My hands are perched in a "Mr. Burn's-like" posture as I am preparing to pounce on the book and insist that "I can do it!" (a tradition Carolyn proudly carries on to this day). Christopher, like Julia, is hunkered in, watching the action, taking it all in. And my patient dad, like Brandon, is fighting through the wriggling bodies and chatter to read us a bedtime story. (ca. late 1983)
