Yesterday I received a gift for the baby from one of my co-workers, she gave the baby The Velveteen Rabbit.
This was a perfect gift! I love to read and I love books. I didn't read too many beginner's childrens books when I was younger (I started with Charlotte's Web) and so it occurred to me that I might need to make a list of books to get for my child. I will also be raiding my book collection that is at my parent's house to collect my childrens books. I do plan on reading to my child right away. In fact, I may even start before she comes out!
This book really was perfect though. I love animals and I love toys and I love books. I think I was smiling for the rest of the day, it really made my day.
It also reminded me that I really want to write a children's book of my own. My friend Marybeth is going to try to write 30 posts in 30 days on her blog. I have decided to join her, but instead I will write a book that month. (or at least begin one.) I never did start writing during November. I think I just got writer's block. I couldn't get motivated. But I like the idea of starting off January 1st with doing some writing.
Stay tuned for more information about that!
And to make you smile...this dog is so sad! She/He knew she/he had done something wrong! Poor doggy!
Don't forget to try and guess what I was talking about in my previous posts. Here and here.
