Dora, Boots and Spiderman- all in one

Posted on: July 22, 2009

I don’t read bed time stories to my kids. Our reading is done much before sleep time. For bed time, Mamma gets creative, stories are made on the go and I tell them those as bed time stories instead of reading. That includes ‘Lion wanting to learn all the cool trick s of  Kung Fu from Kung Fu Panda in 5 mts; a tired kid elephant going to the grocery store to buy bananas and going to mama when he learnt the store ran out of it; a disobedient Rooster boy who did not sleep on time and could not wake up next day morning on time to do his cock – a –doodle –do and the impact of it that whole village runs late that day for everything.’

 The other night, one wanted a spiderman story and other wanted Dora &Boots. But Mamma only tells one story a night. That is when son suggested how about a story connecting Dora, Boots and Spiderman. Well, mama does not give up easily and so do the kids. The story was a hit.

 No, you don’t want to hear it..I am not telling anyway.

Sounds like a ton of fun Mia. If I were the kids, I would get so addicted to the stories..! I don’t think of myself as a creative person, and Arvind says that’s because I have never put my creativity to test. So may be, just may be, I will give it a shot..! and this is a timely because Atul has been pestering me for a ice cream truck story just after bed time reading.
yeah, Icecream truck story is a good start. go for it, until them you never know. for me it also goes with my liking to -someone telling me story than they read to me- may be the reason I started doing this to kids.
do we get to hear the Icecream truck story?

Same pinch, I do it all the time EXCEPT during bed time though, at bed time it is two or three book stories – when I start making up stories it can go on forever and I dont think I will try that at night when I want her to fall asleep right away. Whenever I want to keep Meera occupied I make up stories off the top of my head – the worst part is when Meera asks me to repeat the same story all over again the next day- then I am in trouble- you would know it is on the fly make up stuff – so with my absenmindednes I am not going to remember it all. But my little girl doesnt forget – I miss even the slightest detail, she corrects me 🙂
I would love to hear them too one day. Personally I like to hear story telling than story reading. My make up stories, I make sure there is an end.And most of them I remember too and ofcurse kids do, like you said. they know many such mamma stories now.

I am sure the all-in-one story was awesome… maybe we would be able to hear it some day!
