My son is in a stage of his toddlerhood where he wants to hear stories, repeatedly!
One story is how our cat hated our dog when they first met almost 9 years ago and how she would wage war on him any chance she got.
Another story is how our dog ran around our house on the day we closed and before we moved all our furniture in.
He also loves hearing how my mom had to clean up rotten watermelon off my grandparent's kitchen table when they went to Block Island for a week and forgot to take it with them.
His favorite story ever is how a few years ago, our dog jumped into the tub while I was showering because there was a thunderstorm outside. (Yes, I know it can be dangerous to shower during a storm, but it started after I got into the shower.)
Our son wants to hear these stories ALL DAY LONG.
He also wants to hear new stories from present-day as well and will demand that we repeat things over and over again.
Our little love listens intently to daddy when he comes home from work and demands that daddy not only look ONLY at him while telling us about his day, but will demand that daddy repeat various parts of his story.
In order to combat this onslaught of demands which I KNOW is totally normal and a good sign of brain development (according to his pediatrician), I came up with an idea.
I've started to talk about bible stories and tell them to my husband in front of my son.
When my son first started hearing them, he stuck to them like a moth to a flame and now constantly wants to hear the same bible story over and over again.
While it can still be maddening to repeat the same story over and over again, at least he is learning about Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Here are some of his favorite bible stories to hear again and again and again and again...(you get the picture!)
