But not the armadillo.

Every time I get to the part about the armadillo she says, "Aw, the armadillo's sad." So I've started changing it up once in a while and saying, "and the armadillo too," which makes her happy.

I've read that book twice in the past two weeks, while visiting each of my year-old grandsons. I was going to reference the armadillo (and was quite proud of being in the loop of pop culture for the under-five set) but Southern Girl beat me to it. I like your modification.

I cover up the armadillo until the suspense reaches full blown giggle then we both scream "but not the armadillo!"

I don't know that book; between my niece and my girlfriend's son, I'm currently in the 7-8 year old arena. However, if you had said something about Diary of a Wimpy Kid, THEN I'd have known all about it (:


As for the picture, I just have to add: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! (:

My daughter loved that book so much (she called it "Da Hoppida) that my sister-in-law made her a hippopotamus doll for Christmas. She immediately latched onto the doll, yelling "Doggy! Doggy!"
