Today’s topic in the January Blog a Day challenge is Made with Love.
I promised you I wouldn’t talk about Sweetey Petey and I’m going to stick with that. There’s been enough embarrassment this month already and I still have confession, recovery and things that rhyme coming up. I’m 98% certain I can’t write a rhyming post without embarrassing myself.
That’s right, I’m doing double duty and linking this post in two places. I’m either really awesome or begging for blog hits. If any of you use the term “linky party” I will quit blogging this instant. Or moderate your comment. One of the two.
My distaste of the aforementioned phrase not to be spoken here again is another post though.
Today it’s about kids. Kids made with love. Dang, I said I wasn’t going there. This is harder than I thought.
On a normal Kids’ Reads day I might talk about Sandra Boynton books
and how not only are they the perfect length for a new toddler to actually get through, but how singing and hopping and marching around to Let’s Dance, Little Pookie is often the only thing that cheers up a cranky toddler.
I’m guessing. It might be embarrassing if I did that and, Iike I said, I’ve embarrassed myself enough already this month.
So I’m just guessing that’s what this book is good for. I wouldn’t know. But you should buy it if you have kids or know someone who has kids or think you may ever run into a kid.
But since this isn’t a normal Kids’ Reads day and I need to make it fit into a Made with Love day I’d like to talk about a different kind of book. A handmade book. See what I did there? Ten paragraphs in and I finally nailed it.
That’s what she said.
Sigh. Much harder than I thought.
Anyway, Sweetey Petey was given a book for Christmas last year that is quite possibly one of the most thoughtful gifts he’s received yet.
Hand made. Hand stitched. A page for each letter of Petey’s name.
This book teaches more than just the alphabet, it also teaches about friendship and love. After all, if it has a heart on the back it must be made with love.
To catch up on my January Blog a Day posts:
Tomorrow is . . . what is tomorrow anyway? Ahh yes, a memory. I’d like to share my favorite pre Sweetey Petey memory from the old house. I have to get the Husband’s approval first before I post it. You’ll see why. Well, you won’t “see” why cause I can’t show you a picture. This isn’t that type of blog.
Question of the Day: What’s the best handmade item you’ve ever received? Or given?
