We got these books called “Oh David” from my sister-in-law (Hi Rose!). She is a school teacher, so she bought us tons of amazing books for Kinsey. She got us this small series by David Shannon, featuring a boy named David. He looks pretty dirty, and if there was a real-life boy that looked like this boy, we would probably tell Kinsey to stay away from him.
Conversation from last night with my husband about David:
Me: Did you read to Kinsey?
B: Yes. We read a bunch of books…also, the David ones…I didn’t like it.
Me: Why? Are they dumb?
B: Well. The kid shits himself like all the time.
Me: (Laughing) Stop. He does not.
B: Yes. Literally shits himself. It is inappropriate for children.
Me: Show me. I don’t believe you.
Flip through one of the David books, and see one that indicates a stinky diaper, but doesn’t look like that big of a deal).
B: Well, theres that one. But, thats not the worst of it.
Flip through the other book and see this:
B: Look it! He’s just sitting in a big pile of shit! He’s disgusting! I don’t know why this would be in a children’s book. Its gross.
This morning. We started talking about David again.
B: The kid just looks gross.
Me: He does look really dirty.
B: Its inappropriate.
I don’t know if Bryant will ever get over this.
