Once Isabelle heard about Lancaster Cupcake’s story time + cupcake decorating, she demanded (Yes, demanded.) I take her there with Ari the next time she had a day off from school. Seeing as today is Presidents’ Day, I decided this would be the perfect time to take them there together.
Today’s book was Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey. Emily, the woman reading the book aloud, began story time by engaging the kids with a few questions, one of which was “Who has a dog?”
That’s when Ari, who was sitting right in front of her, shot his hand up and exclaimed, “I do!”
I snorted, shook my head, and turned to the woman next to me and said — flatly, “No he doesn’t.”
The woman next to me and the woman next to her chuckled. One of them said, “He sounds pretty convinced that he has a dog.”
“I think he wishes he had a dog. He does have some stuffed puppies though…”
Let’s be honest: A Puppy, I Puppy, and Patchy ARE real to Ari. I suppose, then, that Ari answered that question honestly!\
