A year ago, we bought this book for K-girl.
Have the fainting couch ready, ladies, because ISN’T THIS ADORABLE?! It is basically a counting book set to the world of Austen.
So, while I was cooking supper tonight (and K-girl kept trying to dance between me and the stove), TheBaldEagle was nice enough to distract K-girl with this book.
And I have to say I was much impressed. After all, it’s not exactly a manly book, and to see my big guy cuddle up so sweetly with our little one to read some Austen touched my heart. ❤
Until I heard this:
“One English village! Ah ah ah! Two rich gentlemen! Ah ah ah!”
For those of you who don’t understand what’s going on, let me bring back a piece of your childhood.
Oh yes, my husband was reading Austen to our child like the Count from Sesame Street.
But the kicker is when I heard this:
“Four marriage proposals! Ah ah ah! That Lizzie sure gets around!”
Note to self: Never let the hubs read Austen again.
