Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a stay at home mom with three girls. All of the time I should spend cleaning or making things I see on Pinterest is usually spent reading instead. Pinterest can get expensive. The library is free. At least until I rack up the fines for overdue books. If I'm not reading something that interests me, I'm listening to my seven year old read to me about fairies or princesses or fairy princesses. If she's not reading to me, I'm reading to my four year old twins about Batman or Star Wars or Legos. We value diversity around here.

One of the most emotionally draining books I have ever read. 


I recently viewed the trailer for the coming movie based on this book. Rarely do I like movies based off of books I love. I'm not going to judge this movie without seeing it. Considering the emotional context of the book, I'm not sure I really want to watch a movie that's going to make me cry like a baby from beginning to end.
