One on One Time

Hi everyone! This post is a couple weeks late, but I had the chance to spend time with B, D, and Baby P individually this past week. It was such a fun experience and I wanted to talk a little about that.

I started out the day with D. We started our outing with a trip to the library. While there we got books, played with puzzles, and played with toys they had there. After the library D and I went to Paradise Valley Burger Company for lunch. D loves cheeseburgers and she devoured it in minutes! We had such a great experience while eating lunch. The guys at Paradise Valley Burger Company drew a smiley face on her burger in ketchup, which she loved! According to her “she felt happy after eating her burger.” It really was such a fun trip!

When we got home it was Baby P’s turn for some one-on-one time. She is a baby so it was not as big as D’s time. Baby P and I sat on the couch and read the new library books D and I got. She loved looking at all the colors, and loved looking at the unicorn book. However, by the time we got to the dog book she was totally over it, and ready for a nap!

B was the last one to have her time alone with me. She was not feeling well that day so we stayed in. B and I used our time to put together a Valentine’s Day craft. It took quite a bit of time to put the craft together, but it was a lot of fun!

Being able to spend time with each of the girls individually was such a great experience. It was a lot of fun for me and I hope for the girls too! What are some of your favorite kid friendly activities? Let me know in the comments below!

Children’s Books to Read

Hey everyone! Today I am going to tell you about a few books your children will love! Yesterday “D” and I went to the library and ended up bringing home a ton of books. However, there were three books that really stuck out to both “D” and I.

The first book I am going to tell you about is Give Please a Chance by Bill O’Reilly and James Patterson. When “D” first put this book in the bag I was unsure about it. I read a few of Bill O’Reilly’s books before, and in my opinion they were a little bit much. I did end up letting “D” get the book, and it was one of the first books we read when we got back to the house. I was pleasantly surprised! The book was filled with different examples of children saying please. This book has amazing illustrations and such a great storyline. After reading this, “D” started saying please all day!

The second book we read was Bobby Bramble Loses His Brain by Dave Keane. “D” absolutely loves this book! We have read it so many times since checking it out. This book is about a boy who takes a fall and loses his brain. Throughout the book, Bobby and his family search for his brain. It is a hilarious book, and “D” laughed through the entire thing! It is a must read!

The third and last book I am going to talk about is Skippyjon Jones Snow What by Judy Chachner. This is such a cute book! “D” loved hearing about the adventure Skippyjon Jones went on to save the princess, Snow What. I honestly believe that “D’s” absolute favorite thing about this book was saying the name Skippyjon Jones. This is part of a series of books, and I look forward to reading more from this series with “D”!

Going to the library with “D” has been such an amazing experience! Getting to read all of these books with “D” has been an even greater experience. What books do you and your children read together? Let me know in the comments below!
