John loves to talk to his dad on the phone. For the last 5 months, each and every time they have talked, John has told him what he wants to do for his birthday. New things every time. A trip to the waterslides, bowling, a movie, back to the waterslides, to the beach, on a bike ride to the park, and so on. John is so excited about his birthday. Only 3 more months....
John is a fun little dude.
Isn't he cute?
Here is a poem about the dangers of using the phone:
by Laura Richards
Once there was an elephant
Who tried to use the telephant.
No, no, I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone.
(Dear me, I am not certain, quite
That even now I've got it right.)
How e're it was he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk
The more he tried to get it free
The louder buzzed the telephee.
(I fear I'd better drop this song
Of elephop and telephong.)
I wonder if my kids could even visualize that. Do they know what a phone with a cord looks like? Can they see that elephant with is trunk all tangled up in the curly telephone wire? I'm not sure...
