Carter Can’t Sleep

Friday, November 13th, 2009

So at nap time today, about 30 minutes after tucking carter in, he appears on the stairs…

DADDY:  Hi Carter.  What are you doing?
CARTER (cheerfully):  I am so tired.  I need to have a little rest.  So I come down.  And after I have a little rest.  I go back up.

Uh-huh.  Well, what it lacked for in logic, he made up for with cuteness.  So Carter earned himself a few minutes of watching Project Runway with me before he has to go back up for his nap.

“A Halloween Story” by Carter

              by Carter

Once there was a little vampire.
And he couldn’t have his Daddy.

And the little ghost was in the story.

Ghost came to rescue the Daddy one.
And the Daddy one said, “I want to suck your bloooooood!”

The ghost doesn’t be scared in this story.
The vampire is just pretending to suck the ghost-es blooood.

There was a fire to get the baby ghost.
And the baby ghost died.

 That was a long made up story.  Can I do a puzzle?
