Sunday Funny

We have this seemingly innocuous counting book about caterpillars. Each page has one less caterpillar, until you get to the end, where they all turn into butterflies:

The only problem is that the butterfly page freaks out River. The first time he got to that page, he squawked, shut the book quickly, and shoved it away from himself. Ever since, he squawks when he sees it and pushes it away- he has no desire to read it again. In fact, the other day Mr M went into the living room and River was squawking and pointing to where the book lay on the floor- he was offended by its very presence and wanted it moved.

We've been meaning to get a video of his reaction, and we finally did it today, but his reaction isn't as indignant as it was the first time. Still funny, but a bit muted.  hopefully the video works- if not, let me know and I can email it to you- it's worth watching :)
