Adventures At Storytime

For the past few weeks, I have been taking K-Dub to the library for Storytime. What is Storytime? It is exactly how it sounds but only better. I started taking K-Dub as an attempt to get us out of the house on Mondays and do something that she could benefit from. Also, it gives her a chance to meet and interact with other kids.

When you arrive at Storytime, you take your kid and sit on a huge blue carpet and wait for the “Instructor of the Day” to come in. Once they arrive they greet everyone and ask you to introduce yourself and your kid. After all the parents introduce their selves and their kid we are free to start.

Every week there is a new theme in the subject matter of the books. The first week we were there it was Space, then rhymes, and then this past week was love. I have to say that K-Dub loved all the book choices that were picked out. She sat there and listened as they read them and pointed to all the pretty pictures. I never thought she would sit so still in my life.

After a story is read the instructor does an activity with the kids. This includes a song with hand motions, playing with a parachute, or even fun game. K-Dub loves the shakers and “The Milkshake Song”. She smiles really hard every time.

So we have been to Storytime every Monday for the past three weeks and I have to say that it has become the highlight of my week with K-Dub. I love spending time with her alone cause it gives us a chance to bond. She is so silly. It also helps that her cousin HJ and Aunt Kape comes with us too.

She Has No Idea What Easter Is But Look At All The Cool Stuff!

Karsyn had her first Easter on Sunday and this girl got so much stuff. I think the Easter Bunny may have went a little overboard but it’s this kids first Easter. She did not even know what was going on. I am not going to lie that I was pretty jealous the Easter Bunny did not bring anything for me. I had to get up Monday morning a race to Target and get 50% off Reese’s Easter Eggs. Was it worth the trip? Hell yes!!!

The Art Of Racing In The Rain Is My New Favorite Book!

One book that I could read again and I hope I can soon is “The Art of Racing In The Rain” by Garth Stein. I love how this book shows the American family through the eyes of a dog. I like how the book has a lot of serious parts in it but it also has a lot of funny ones. I do not even like racing but this was a book I did not want to put down.

My favorite characters are Enzo, the dog and Denny the up and coming racing star and Enzo’s owner. I think the bond of these two is nothing short of remarkable. Even when the book takes them to dark places they still keep their relationship strong.

Through love, death, and laughter this book takes you through the life of this family one paw at a time. It teaches you what it really means to be human and that no matter how hard things can get you must keep racing in the rain.
