Sometimes I CAN be a good mommy!
And I even do it! My son finished his book two days ago. He is required to read for 20 minutes every day for school. Last night he read a book of poems, which is fine. It is "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by A.A. Milne. Great poems, great book. ... Read more

Every morning, you have to make a decision
I'll tell you what that decision is in just a minute. First, I need to explain. (As always! LOL!)
When I read, it is for pure entertainment. If I learn something while reading a book, it is purely on accident. I do NOT seek out great w... Read more

Hungry, hungry hippo!
No, I'm not calling myself a hippo. BUT, do you remember that game? You'd slap the lever on the hippo's butt and their mouth would pop open. Then your hippo would "devour" whatever was in front of them. Even when it was just marbles! Ick!!... Read more
