One of the things about story time that Joseph likes is that we sing a song at the beginning and end. The one we sing at the end goes "Our story time is over, its time to go home. Goodbye, Goodbye, until we meet again." I started singing it at home, with a variation in the words, after coffee/snack time to let Joseph know it is now nap time. When I finish he always repeats "Goodbye" in a singsong voice, so as to let me know he wants me to sing it again. On another day I started singing "Good morning" from 'Singin' in the Rain,' and he loved it. He kept singing 'Good Morning' throughout the afternoon to get me to sing it again. Then, when Jim came home he said 'Good Morning, Daddy' clear as a bell! Jim and I just looked at each other in frank amazement.
