Mama Loves is a linky party where mamas can share anything that has made your life easier as a mama.
Maybe you've found:
- a toy or book that captivates your child(ren)
- gear you just can't live without
- a recipe your choosy toddler gobbles down
- a parenting book that you've found perspective changing
- an activity that wears your kid(s) out (these lead to good naps, which we all love)
- an outfit that flatters your post-baby body and makes you feel fabulous
- or anything else you're loving--creativity welcome!
To link your post up, click on the linky tool at the bottom, and follow the directions, it's really easy. You can also add this beautiful button to your post. Just grab the code in the box, copy and paste it into your post. Easy.
There are 49 days and some hours till Christmas. How does that sit with you?
My goal is to get Christmas shopping done as quickly and as painlessly as possible. I'd love to be done by December 1st. We'll see.
Last week two Mama Loves posters gave some great book recommendations, just in time for me to add them to the girls' Christmas list. Seriously. Check out Katie's place and Mandy's place. We love books in this house--thanks, ladies!
I thought I'd add another book for your Christmas list consideration.
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen.
It's rhythmic, and fun--one of those books you won't mind reading over and over and over again.
My girls love to stand up and dance to beat of the words as we read them, and they usually chime in on chorus.
That's right, because of this book they've learned the word pout, but they always have to say it twice. They've also learned the word blub; I'm not sure if that's a word or a sound. Blogger says it's not a word, but the Merriam-Webster dictionary says it is a word. Why can't we all just get along?!
Anyway while Blogger and Merriam-Webster duke it out over blub, you should check out The Pout-Pout Fish. It won't disappoint.
In the middle of the fun words and beautiful illustrations The Pout-Pout Fish has to offer, there are two great messages for kids to hear:
- That we are what we believe about ourselves.
- Love wins.
Can't wait to see what other great stuff you have for me to add to my Christmas list!
