A Bookish Quote

"My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter." ~ Thomas Helm

This quote sooo reminds me of my Baby Girl. When she was little, watching her Disney movies, I noticed she would keep rewinding them (yes, they were VHS). I HAD to figure out why the heck she was doing that.

It all became very clear after she received Mary Poppins from Grandma and Grandpa that year for her birthday. She watched the whole darn thing all the way through. ONCE. After that, she would rewind it a ways back when she knew the end was coming. I asked her why she was doing that. She replied very matter-of-factly that she wasn't through watching it so she couldn't watch the end yet. It wouldn't have been so bad except for the fact she watched that SAME movie over and over for a lonnnng time. *shudder* I would occasionally have to hide a movie for a bit to retain the smidge of sanity that I started with.

Great. Juuuust a spoon-ful of sugar helps the med-i-cine go down, the med-i-cine go down, the med-i-cine go dowwwn....stuck in my head.
