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.

The First Man in Rome - Colleen McCullough

Into year three and I have found the best line in the book. "Her breasts had sagged like two empty socks with toes full of pebbles." 


I had a rough day. It was my first full day back at work in nearly five years. One my four year olds said she hated me when I left her with the sitter and a kid threw up in my classroom. I needed a giggle. That made me giggle.
