Gratuitously Cute Toddler Story #659

One of the books Pumpkin has been enjoying for the past few months is Silly Sally, by Audrey Wood. For those not familiar with the story: Silly Sally heads to town, walking backwards upside down. On her way, she meets various animals, until she meets a sheep (a silly sheep!) and falls asleep. Then a character called Neddy Buttercup comes along and tickles everyone awake, so that they can continue to town.

Lately, when we get to the pages where Neddy Buttercup is tickling, Pumpkin reaches out and tickles the book. She does this much like she tickles her Daddy- she sort of lightly pinches the pages, while saying "ickle, ickle" in a high-pitched voice and giggling.

It is just about the cutest thing ever.
