The boys finalized their Halloween costume choices this morning. (thank you Internet for not making me drag two indecisive little boys down the Halloween aisle... again.) Rose's costume still remains a mystery. D-man wants her to be a lady bug or princess. Ry thinks she should wear a tutu, be spider-girl or some sort of insect as well. They are requesting that I dress up as something other than Mama (no real suggestions, though) and that Daddy could be Batman or Spiderman. (Personally, I think we'll go as the parents of super-hero, animated movie star, insect/princess... apparently we have some wildly diverse genes floating in our pool.)
I have two book suggestions for yo-ou! (this is really bringing back Reading Rainbow memories)
Have you ever had the kind of day where your children didn't listen or consider the consequences of their behavior and the toll it would take on you? Do you want to tell them NO! over and over without doing mental math on how much you need to save for future therapy sessions? I've got a book for you:
|No, David! by David Shannon|
Reasons the kids like it- (speaking for them here) They think it's funny, they can totally identify with David, when mommy shouts No! while reading this book she's funny and not scary.
Book numero dos: Does your child frequently make messes for you to clean up? Is she/he fussy and sometimes inconsolable? Does your child need help in almost every aspect of their young life and reassurance that mommy loves them?
|Who Loves the Little Lamb? by Lezlie Evans Illustrated by David McPhail|
I asked a long time ago whether I should get bangs if I ever got my hair cut. Apparently my hair has decided this for me.
|my hair does that all by itself. pretty awesome|
Ending on that high note... go have a super dandy kind of day.
(stole that line from my fantastic, wonderful, awesome husband. You are super dandy. I like you, I think I'll give you a nickname.)
