I left the living room for a brief minute the other day.
When I left I said to Tom, “Take care of Alice. I’ll be right back!”
And when I came back into the room, this is what I saw…
He’s reading her “Freight Train” by Donald Crews.
He was really reading it to her!
I heard him say, “A train runs across this track…” which is the first line in the story.
And Alice was totally paying attention.
And my heart totally melted.
