The other night Andrew was on the computer before bed, when he said to me over his shoulder: "You know it's March, right?" My reply: "And?" Then I saw that he was looking at Clinka's Apples... which hadn't been updated in a while. I told him clearly: "I'm just not inspired right now." I think March is largely to blame for that. I want spring. I want it so badly I can taste it. I want to feel the sun on my skin, and smell that fresh-spring-earthy-smell. There are actually plenty of Julian & Nora stories I could share, but unfortunately the most entertaining ones as of late also contain images of poo and other not-so-nice things. So tonight I will tell you about a lovely book I ordered for Nora, called "Someday", purchased entirely based on the cover (which is how I make most of my purchases). The book arrived today, and before putting Julian to bed I read to him (Nora was too tired for a book tonight). I actually broke into tears part way through. Julian said: "Mommy, keep reading." So, I kept reading... with crackling voice. Every Mommy must buy it. As well as some tissue to go along with it.
P.S. It is the next day... Tonight I found Julian scribbling with red pen in this book. At first I was very upset, I wanted this to be a beautiful keepsake for Nora. Julian could tell by the look on my face how unhappy I was... he immediately cried and said "I'm sorry Mommy.". Then I realized this book is made all the more special by him leaving his little mark in it. Thank you, Jbug.
