using your imagination

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

I have started a book collection for Max and want it to include all the good ole classics. I was beyond excited when I found out a new Goodwill opened that is solely a book donation store. I found a bunch of hard cover Dr. Seuss books in excellent condition. $2 each



We are not a big TV watching family. There are just so many other exciting things to do....But when did cartoons get so WEIRD? Have you seen Yo Gabba Gabba? Weird Weird. How does a normal, drug free brain even come up with that stuff? I watched it a few times and ended up having the song "Don't Bite Your Friends" in my head all day. No thanks.

I would much rather read to Max..opposed to plopping him in front of the tube while he watches Baby Einstein teach him how to spell cow. I know I know, some Moms LOVE Baby Einstein, but after watching 10 minutes I couldn't take it anymore and either could Max ; )

I want to fill his cute little head with memories of us reading stories to him, where he can use his imagination.

From Dad:
Lindzer your mom has a whole bunch of books I used to read you... like a million times. Awesome books. Even though you couldn't read you knew when I would change up the words... "Dad it doesn't say that!" "Lindzer, how do you know you can't read! Look these words say... hot Home Depot cashier."
