Scary Cat Book...VERY funny but NOT Appropriate for Kids
She was so excited and asked me to read it to her. I got her all snuggled on my lap and started using my fun reading voice but burtst out laughing and had to stop half-way through the first sentance. This was odd...should I go on?
"Mommy, what's wrong?" my daughter asked.
"Nothing," I say. "Let's try the next page."
Hmm...I don't really want to explain what disembowel means. Or intenstines for that matter. Moving on...
Killing spree. Perfect material for our cozy fireside chat. By now my daughter is starting to catch on that these kitties aren't cute. Or nice.
"I'm scared of that kitty," she says. I do give it a valiant effort, but in the end, they're all either scary or inappropriate. Funny, yes. Good reading for my three year old, not so much.
