Can Boots Read to You?

The last few days we have been teasing Joy by asking her if Boots (one of our cats) can read her bedtime story instead of us. Her emphatic answer each time is "No! Boots doesn't have any hands!" Sometimes she says it in a voice like "Mom, Dad, are you dense? What part of "doesn't have hands" don't you understand?" and then she smiles.

I finally got it on tape. Though she saw me with the camera .... that last phrase in case you don't understand toddler-ese is "I wanna see me" ... and yes, she is saying "Cheese" while waiting for me to take a picture


OH MY GOSH! Just before hitting publish Tim says, "Hey Boots, read Joy a story." Joy says, "No, Boots can't talk".
