Obviously she is too young to be taught to read… but we do model reading behavior with her and we look at a lot of books. With Daddy…. Books with Grandma…. Books with Miss Monica…. Books with Grandma Karen And with mommy! I can only hope that she enjoys reading as much as we do!
Oh Good Grief. Longtime blog readers might remember this piece I wrote eons ago when the Sweet Valley High books were re-released.

I haven’t listened to country music in a while… but today I got a hankering while I was cleaning. Country music has changed. Or maybe, just maybe, I have.
