Free Week and I am going to be hard pressed because I have Toddler Grandson and the D-in-Law coming. Her class reunion is down near Bowling Green, about one-hundred miles away, but her mother lives about 45 in the opposite direction, so mine will be the place to stay.
I don’t know how long they will be here, probably less than a week and with the traveling to the reunion, to see extended family not far from the area there, and then up to see her mother and sister, I might not see a lot of them.
However, seventeen-month-old Ben will be read to.
I held onto many books; the ones his dad and uncle wanted to hear over and over are mostly the ones that his eighteen-year-old brother wanted over and over.
These will include, but not be limited to:
The Tawny Scrawny Lion
The Happy Man and His Dump Truck
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
The Happy Barnyard
Cars and Trucks
Going through some of the ones that I would like, he isn’t going to be ready to sit still for. I am till not all that sure that he will sit still for these. I started reading to my nieces, my sons and all of the grandkids when they were barely able to sit up,(and I am not sure that I didn’t start before then with this one’s big brother).
This one’s mother started later and he doesn’t sit still for her past a few pages.
I’ll work on it.
I’ll work on it because ever since he was born, I have been planning on using the video calls they make to me to read stories to him.
I expect to get to him eventually.
Then I want to hook him with chapter books and make him want to find out what is next!
So, if I don’t get back here to acknowledge you right away, I will be toddling around with a toddler.
It’s been a while, since the second youngest grandchild just turned fifteen.
Wish me luck.
