If You Give A Mom A Book

If You Give A Mom A Book

Transition can be a difficult thing. And our transition from vacation mode to family life came with a few moguls and black diamonds along the way.

We read books, did school, learned to get along (multiple times), welcomed a new family member into the world, shoveled snow, began to learn about the United States, and worked towards getting my Once Upon A Book post ready over at Totally Tots.

The fun book of the week that made our imaginations soar was . . .

We have the board book of this that we videoed Brian reading to the boys while he was in India two years ago.  So it was fun to hear about how the Lazarado's acquired Bob.

It was one of our first good snugly moments of the week . . . 

Sorry this is brief . . . but there is a lot to do today!  But always still time to take a minute and read a book to one of my kids!
