And isn't she just about the cutest little puddle jumper you've ever seen????
So have you all had a lot of rain where you are? Or perhaps snow????
We've been downright wet and soggy around here lately, and sweet Ellie has had ample opportunity to practice her new word "puddle." Goodness knows she's heard it enough, as in, "Ellie, watch the puddles. Ellie, stay out of the puddles. Ellie, let's keep our feet dry."
So, as we were driving in the car today, after having been out of the car and navigating a very "puddley" parking lot (without those cute boots) Ellie was practicing her new word, and I said to her, "Ellie, we've got a story book about puddles at home. Remind me to get it out and read it when we get back."
To which Charlie replied, "Mommy, we have books about EVERYTHING at our house!" And my boy was exactly right. You see, he's got a mama who LOVES books. Most especially children's books. It could just be an obsession of mine. I mean, as we turned over the calendar to 2013, my dear husband began talking about how we could "cut back" this year (gotta love having a banker for a husband) and what did he mention as the place I could cut back? Amazon. Yep, he asked me if I thought it might be possible to cut back on my book purchases because they had become a line item in the budget. And THAT, my friends, is a really tough thing for this mama.
Ooooh, that "buy now with 1*click" button. That is my downfall. I can see a book recommendation on a blog, clink the link which takes me to Amazon, click that little "buy now with 1*click" button, and then that book will be at my doorstep in just 2 short days. And what's not to love about that????
Are any of you with me on this????
