Mortimer Be Quiet - Robert Munsch

"Bang-bang, rattle-ding-bang goin' make my noise all day"

For those of you aren't familiar with the story of Mortimer , it was one of Robert Munsch's many great children's books. Growing up I enjoyed reading Munsch books. So before Laura and Brady were born I made sure to buy a set of his book for them.

We've read Laura and Brady the series of Munsch books on several times during our bedtime routine. Each night we would do our best to read a different book. It gave the twins a variety and Mommy and Daddy a break from reading the same the story over and over again. That is until a few weeks ago when Laura and Brady first began trying to say Mortimer's famous line "Bang-bang, rattle-ding-bang goin' make my noise all day!" This is said at eight time throughout the book. I'm surprised I'm not saying "Bang-bang, rattle-ding-bang goin' make my noise all day" in my sleep.

At first my husband and I thought they looked cute swaying back and forth saying "bang, bang". They haven't quite master the rest of it yet. Needless to say, here we are at least three weeks later, still reading this same book.

There are nights where I thought I was pulling a fast one on them, by reading a different book at bedtime, but no such luck. As soon as I would finish reading the different book they would both go to the dresser (where they know Mortimer is) and starter pointing and asking for it.

Let's face it. Is it really worth turning bedtime into a fight because I've read this book so much that now, I want to tell Mortimer to be quiet. I don't think so. It takes 5 minutes to read the story, Laura and Brady go to bed no problem and Mommy's happy too!

So, for now Mortimer it is.
