No school today - it was another snow day and probably another one tomorrow as another storm is headed through tonight. So it looks like we are home bound for the next few days - h.e.l.p.
I did have a good parenting moment today when we listened to our new favorite book, I Got Two Dogs by John Lithgow. Who knew that John Lithgow could connect with kids in writing such a fun kids book? His other one we got from the library, The Remarkable Farkle McBride, is also a good one. Landon (6) especially likes its challenging words and rhythm.
The best part about I Got Two Dogs is that it comes with a CD that has Lithgow singing the book to a tune. Super cute. We had gone to story time at the library yesterday and the children's librarian said it was the most popular kids book in the library! I must warn you though - it's the kind of tune that gets stuck in your head. Several times today I have heard Landon singing the chorus of the song. It's that catchy. You have been warned. I even started singing the song to Calvin until I realized how ridiculous I must sound, "it is the funniest kids book. It goes like this...". Ha!
If anyone has any super easy crafts that I could put into action for the next 5 days (5 days!), please share. I have a feeling we will need some reinforcement. And I can have some more "good mommy" moments.
