Dalton and Sophie's Mommy

Pardon me while I thank my mom for getting me reading again...

I think I fell in love with reading sometime in Jr. High and couldn't get enough of those Baby Sitter Club books.
I would delve in and imagine being these high school girls.  The were best friends who had their own baby sitting club. In what I remember being one of my favoriets (though I no longer remember the title) where two of the baby sitters got to go somewhere tropical with a family and I'm sure there were boys involved too.

That theme has continued with me through the years. I can read while watching tv...listening to music...while my kids are bathing...just not while driving (bummer me...eww car sickness).  But in all honesty I haven't had much time to read since having kids.  I did read the whole Twilight series in a matter of just two or three weeks but other than that I haven't read anything regulary.

This year for Christmas my mom told my that my sister had mentioned that she might want a nook.  I was quick to say I want one too! AND I LOVE IT!!!!!! I've finished two books since Christmas which might not seem like a lot but it's more than I read all year last year so! I'm currently reading the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.  I'm on book number 4 of 18 but I have a feeling I'm going to fly through them. So if you have book suggestions to share with me...start sending them! My nook (I feel like I should name her) and I have a lot of stories to explore...I have a feeling it's going to be a very long and lasting relationship!

So mom thanks again for the nook and for reinstating that love of reading and making it easier for me to let my imagination roam into these other worlds.  I love you!

nook is owned by Barnes and Noble...you can check them out at www.bn.com .

Six years and a few days ago...

I gave birth to the second love of my life...he weight 6 lbs 3 oz and was the most perfect little man I had ever seen.  Now someone tell me where the last 6 years and few days have gone?!?!?!? How did my teeny tiny little baby turn into a big kid...a wrestler...a 6 year old!!!! I couldn't be more proud of the kid Mr. Dalton has become.  He has the kindest heart of any boy I know.  He plays with his sister and makes sure she's always well taken care of.  He smiles the entire time he's on the wrestling mat.  He reads me books at night and is always begging to make me a new piece of art.  He's my best friend! I can't imagine not having him as my first born...we have that first born-mom-son bond that words just can't describe.  I'm looking forward to watching him continue to grow and see what kind of big kid, teenager, man he becomes but right now I'm living and loving the moment we're in. He reminds me every day how lucky and blessed I am to have him and his sister and I'm cherishing everything about them that I can.
