LET’S READ PETE THE CAT. OMG. Who is Pete the Cat and WHY is my Kindergartener obsessed with him? Has this thought crossed your mind?
For a few years there, Pete was pretty much a member of our family! Even though our boys are now 8 and 9-years-old, I’ll catch them reading a Pete book or that blue cat doll will be tucked into bed with one of them.
Every night, it was all about Pete. We had a stray barn cat, guess what my kid named him? Yep, Pete.
When I asked my kid about what he did at school, it was all about Pete.
We had the same night night song since this kid was born – nope, the boys wanted Pete Walking in my Shoes. I thought maybe he mean these boots are made for walking, nope. He started blurting out “I’m walking in my shoes. I’m rocking in my shoes.” It got so bad that they even learned that they could have Alexa play the Pete songs.
