I believe I’ve mentioned before that this winter is absolutely kicking my butt. It’s gloomy. It’s cold. I can’t remember the last time we saw the sun. Not only is it pulling my mood down in the dumps, but my kids have WAY too much energy that they aren’t getting to burn off outside. So what do we do? We go the library. Look at books. Play on the computers. Run up four flights of stairs (the kids, not me), then take the elevator down.
Where I quietly try to take pictures of my kids–because really, who can resist this little one in big earphones?
Jaxen prefers the “I’m too cool to sit down” stance for the photo opportunities.
And after a bit, I begin to get the “Seriously???” look.
So I try to resist the impulse to take yet even more photos of my beautiful (if I do say so myself) children. And I succeed until we get home, and I see this.
Ahh…the joys of books on CD for children. Educational and entertaining for Sister Bear, and 30 minutes of peace for Mom. Hallelujah. A win-win for all involved, I must say.
