Nap time hasn’t been so pleasant since Ethan got into the toddler bed. Therefore, I haven’t had a lot of time to write a post. Right this moment Ethan is sitting by the door of his bedroom singing loudly and playing with the springy doorstop. My only hope is that he doesn’t disturb his sister who is not a happy camper when woken up before she’s ready. If only there were a safe form of electric fence I could put around his bed.
This week I have been reading for Every Free Chance Reviews as usual. This week I have started reading for my October theme. I bet you could guess what I’m reading. That’s right, horror novels. I used to read a lot of Goosebumps, Fear Street, and Christopher Pike novels when I was younger. I couldn’t get enough. There is something about trying to terrify myself that seemed fun at the time. Now as an adult I find horror novels scarier. Why? Probably because I have the feeling that in this day and age something scary could happen. Especially since I am reading the book Intensity by Dean Koontz. Have you read it? If not I will tell you that I have been feeling like I am going to have a panic attack at any moment.
The kids on the other hand are not reading something scary. Instead they have been enjoying Llama Llama Hoppity-Hop by Anna Dewdney. I found the Llama Llama books while teaching daycare. My two year olds LOVED THEM. I got sucked in and I was happy when I could share them with Ethan and Emma. They love how they rhyme and they love the pictures. This cute little board book is one that even Emma is starting to read along with me.
