Sorry about that. These days I'm like a yo-yo in the hands of my two-year-old. Here, there, and everywhere... unpredictable and erratic, you get the idea.
And right now, I'm here. I've climbed out of the shopping cart and have my feet back on the ground in Sanityville. We're all down and out with cough and colds and whatever else is keeping us up at all hours. Here's one of the sick bunnies.
If you find any sleep, could you send it our way? Thanks. Today we're all hunkered down into our cozy house watching huge snow flakes pile up outside and making our way through our piles of books inside.
We are loving the good finds from the library this week. Mmmm...call me crazy but I have to share some favorites. I may be more into the kid's books than the kids themselves but I found the colors and graphics in this book beautiful. I love the mix of modern and vintage. Here's a sneak peak of C is for Caboose designed by Gillingham.
I've spent a good part of the day dreaming this is my sisters and me taking lunch on the Canadian Pacific train. Escapism? Maybe. But seriously, why can't we wear hats like that now?
And then, this little gem, Adele and Simon by McClintock.
It's a sweet little whimsical story about a responsible older sister touting her little brother all over Paris. The really fun part is finding Simon's missing items in all sorts of famous places in the city.
Can you spot the famous artists joining the hunt for Simon's crayons?
If you have little ones, check these out. If you don't have little ones, check these out. Now I'm off to do some strumming with a little girl who just turned seven! Can you guess what Grandma and Grandpa gave her for her birthday? As soon as we can play Mary Had a Little Lamb we'll be sure to post a video for your listening ;). Oh, and Oma and Opa sent her a recorder...HELP! Where can I hide that thing?
