That points at him amazed.”

  1. I tried to look up the painting that they are looking at but I’ve run out of time. I do think that’s a piano with a metronome on it. and that the girls are contemplating having to do piano lessons. There’s lot of other random associations I can make too though. Like Goodnight Moon. Have you ever read that/seen the video? It’s a favorite at bedtime in our house.

    • You might be right 😉 I’ll have to recheck later. I was so engrossed by the girls basically falling headfirst into the picture, that I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the picture itself 😉

      I remember (deep down, somewhat fuzzy memory) hearing about goodnight moon, goodnight stars and so, not sure if this is the right one though, I will have to check it out in a sec – In any case thanks for sharing a bedtime fav (as I’m having trouble sleeping lately this comes as a very welcome remedy 😉 )

      • Ah it was lovely – Thank you so much for this (My favorit line was the “goodnight noises everywhere”!)

        Also (since i followed it to youtube) it gave me the extra-bonus of finding my all-time childhood favorite

        “A very hungry catterpillar”! 😀
