Day 978 - Conversations with Andrew

Every week we go to Costco, we usually buy the kids a little something like a toy, book, or a 190 count box of Nicorette gum. This past weekend, we bought them a hardcover book of Disney stories called Tales of Fun & Friendship.

The book has six different short stories centered on friendship based on Disney movies: Finding Nemo, The Wild, Lilo & Stitch, Toy Story, Cars, and Apocalypto. Of course, Andrew wants us to read the Cars story over and over again.

The Cars story recaps the movie, but is better in two ways: 1) It focuses on the friendship between McQueen and Mater, and 2) it is 114 minutes shorter.

Today, Andrew ran up to me with the book and started shouting, "Cars book! Cars book! Read Cars book!"

So I sat him down, turned to page one, and began to read.

"McQueen was a race car. He was shiny and fast. He wanted one win the big race!" I read to Andrew.

"McQueen car fast! Ka-chow!" screamed Andrew.

I turned the page and began to read again.

"Mater was a tow truck. He was old and rusty. He wanted one thing -- a best friend," I told Andrew.

"Mater brown truck!" shouted Andrew.

And Andrew continued, "Grandma! Old rusty too!"
