Vacation and Bath Time Books
Wow, what a season of life my wee little family has had these past months. We entered summer with a home damaged from a spring storm, the sudden passing of my wonderful father, endured countless dealings with attorneys, still dealing with roofers and insurance companies, several illness with the wee one, husband’s increased work demands, family events, wrapping up estate matters, trying to keep up with things breaking all over the house, and started the fall with the death of a dear family friend all this while trying to have a regular daily family life. Hum, I was wondering why this book blog has been looking a bit thin lately.
Well, even though we are not going anywhere next week, my wee little family is going to take some time off and just be. Maybe a trip to the park, a pumpkin patch, or maybe another zoo trip, whatever it is I plan to enjoy it. Plus, I am determined to catch up with those dust bunnies that have invaded the floors. So, it will be another week or two before I post about some really good books that I have come across recently.
But, before I leave you for the next week and half I wanted to give a big thanks to whoever was the great mind behind the concept of bath books. May their pockets reflect well. My wee one who just can’t get enough of books has found another way to get some book time. My fabulous husband discovered bath books for us and now we have splash and read time. So far, we have a few Baby Einsteins and a Dr. Seuss. The rhyming is fun and I especially like how she tries to mimic the bath sequence as we read the Mimi’s Toe Baby Einstein bath book.
Ta ta for now. Get out there and enjoy those beautiful fall colors. If you are in the sunny warm states that skip this season, I hope your flowers are still blooming and trees are full of fruit like my sister’s in California.
