This morning I was showing some children’s books to the Mister (we’re thinking about Cricket’s Christmas gift) and I mentioned one Christmas children’s book that I have that I think the Mister would really like. He said “I should read it to you this Christmas . . . Oh!!” And the look on his face in that ellipsis, as he remembered that there will be a baby to read to, was beautiful.

  1. That is so sweet! What a precious moment 🙂 By the way, I still have The Giving Tree, Runaway Bunny and a few 99 cent Children’s Place sale clothes to send you. I’m holding off until after a the big tri-city garage sale in a few weeks because I know I will find more goodies to stuff the box with then!

  2. Reading to a newborn is one of the true delights on this planet.

    Do you know Morris’ Disappearing Bag? Rosemary Wells. I don’t know if it’s in print but it is one of the greatest xmas books for kids ever. In my book at least.
