That is what happens by the end of the week and I'm running on empty.
Yesterday Kevin walked into the kitchen as the kids and I were hopping around and singing Frog Song by Charlie Hope at the top of our lungs and he shook his head and asked me to please not turn un-cool.
Now Charlie Hope sings beautiful songs for children (the lullaby Little One is also a fave) that are VERY cool however I guess no one ever bothered to tell Kevin that I have never been cool. I don't know how I've managed to trick him so far ♥.
Court and I have been enjoying the book I got him for Christmas...
we snuggle up at night and follow along to the tune. Peter Yarrow was the Peter in Peter, Paul & Mary and I remember them on my parents television as a child singing Leaving on a Jet Plane and my mom humming along. The TV was black and white and you had to get up and turn the dial to change the channel - so cool. Peter's book is sweet and the illustrations are beautiful.
Charlotte's Christmas book was...
due to our mutual love of Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee.
My delight over this fabulous book was most definitely un-cool. How much do I love Gollie's modernist tree house and Bink's garden of carrots and her galoshes I simply cannot express...
"I have brought you half of my pancakes, " said Gollie.
"And I've removed one of my outrageous socks," said Bink. "It's a compromise bonanza!"
What is a bonanza?
Whatever it is...I adore it:)
