Tonight, I told a short version of Toy Story 3 to my little 3 years old boy. He was sitting on my laps, looking attentively at the book, just before going to bed. We both enjoyed this very special moment. We laugh together, I tickle him from time to time, give him some kisses while telling the story and he loved it.
To me, this is probably the best moment of the day we share together. In the morning, we’re too much in a hurry to go to kindergarten and then to work. We don’t see each other for the whole day, then when I come home late, my wife and the kids already ate dinner most of the time. Then we needs to clean things up, give the bath to the kids, finish the homework of the older sister, etc. Just like most parents with little kids, we’re running all over the place from 6 am to 7 pm all days of the week.
Bedtime stories are almost the only time of the weekdays when we can fully enjoy the moment with our kids. A true moment of pure dad and boy time. At this time, nothing else matter, we’re together!
Tonight, then, I decided that Toy Story 3 was going to be the very first story told for my project Millions of Stories. I admit it, that was not at all an effort for me, not even a small one. Who cares? The only thing that matter really is that by telling my son a story, I ended up sharing an awesome moment with him and I made him happy.
This is what I’m dreaming for the 999,999 other children who will be told a story during this project.
