After instituting a bedtime ritual for the Pickle involving reading time every night, we read books. One of these books may or may not happen to be Sandra Boynton’s Personal Penguin. This book seems to have resonated with the Pickle. At the zoo today, the Pickle approached the Gremlin.
“Brudder, I want to be your personal Pickle.” He walked up to his brother and held out his arms.
“Look at these arms, so perfect to hug you!” He stopped and looked at his brother, then took a few more steps up to him.
“I going to hug you now, brudder.”
