I am a former stay-at-home mom who has given up her hopes and dreams of becoming a professional reader. I now spend my days showing small children how to play games on computers. Right now I'm living vicariously through my 9 year-old who is reading everything she can get her hands on.
So the other adult in my house is away this weekend. He's at some brain-crush, brain-wave, brain-something-or-other Apple training. He won't be back until Tuesday. What's a girl to do?
Well, tonight, this girl is going to binge watch some Tudors (If you can't share your bedroom with your husband, you might as well share it with Henry Cavill, right?) and eat some Ben and Jerry's. I have to save the red wine. I forgot to replenish my stock the last time I went grocery shopping and Minnesota still has laws about Sunday liquor sales (maybe not for long).
Tomorrow I am hoping to get some free time to get ready for Read Across America next week. Hopefully that free time will involve me updating my blog with some pictures of the Dr. Seuss projects I helped put up at my elementary school. Read Across America week just might be my favorite week of the year!
Stay tuned! Lots of rhymes and nonsensical words are coming soon! While you are waiting on pin and needles for my next installment, what is your favorite Dr. Seuss book? As a kid I was a huge fan of Green Eggs and Ham. As a mother of twins, I'm a pretty big fan of Thing One and Thing Two from The Cat In the Hat. My eight year-old loves making all of the funny noises that come with Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? My four year olds are big fans of reading The Grinch Who Stole Christmas no matter what time of year it is.
