I Love Books AND a **Giveaway!**
The little girls have been sick. It stinks. Littlebit has handled it pretty well, but it’s made Baby Bee clingy and miserable. I can’t blog, because if Baby Bee isn’t personally physically abusing me (moms, you know what I mean. Headbutting, pinching, pulling, etc) she’s sadder than sad. The Realtor is coming on Saturday to get the house on the market (because ZOMG! We’re MOVING) and I haven’t been able to get this joint picked up at all.
This leaves me no choice but to go to my happy place. Between the mess and the stress and the crying; the constant, constant tell-tale heartesque crying, I’ve spent a lot of time in happy places.
When Littlbit arrived at school today, one of my favoritist things had happened.
It was Scholastic Book Order Day! Not only did the books I ordered last time arrive, but the new book orders had arrived. BLISS. FREAKING BLISS!
I love Scholastic Book Club. It really is a nice way for families to acquire affordable books and I believe strongly in the benefit of a child having books of their own. Libraries are great. FANTASTIC. I LOVE libraries, but the books that hold a place in my heart from my childhood was the dog eared copies I owned myself. Read over and over and memorized out of love. Beezus and Ramona. Little Women. LIttle House in the Prairie. The Princess and Littlbit have favorites of their own. Picture books read lovingly over and over. No, David. Skippyjohn Jones. Chrysanthemum. Pinkilicious. I also love that Scholastic provides books for the classroom.
Books. Books. Books. Books.
So, dear readers, today when I was paging through the book order flyers I decided that I was gong to share some book love with you. And your little people. :)
