As every parent knows, a good bedtime story bears repeating — and repeating and repeating. In fact, a real favorite may require extra readings throughout the day.
So the key to keeping it fresh is to get creative, something model and mom Chrissy Teigen has mastered.
The 31-year-old recently shared her technique in an adorable Instagram video, in which she doesn't just read — she raps!
Teigen reclines alongside her daughter, 1-year-old Luna, and holds a well-worn copy of Sandra Boynton's "Barnyard Dance!" in the clip. But rather than giving the verse a traditional do-si-do approach, she snaps out, "Prance with the horses / Skitter with the mice / Swing yo' partner once or twice!"
As for Luna, who's dressed perfectly for the occasion with a fashionable "gansta napper" onesie, she loves it — and so does her dad, John Legend.
