The Reading Room/Really Big Tower Edition
Updated to Add: George’s ears were pronounced “beautiful” by the pediatrician. Does this mean that I can’t read an otoscope? Or that your prayers were powerful enough to heal him?
In other news, Cate got her eyes checked while we were there. George’s ears may be “beautiful” but Cate’s vision is not. She needs glasses. Sigh.
Not a lot of time for blogging today because, as it turns out, Baby George has an ear infection (I think) and that’s why he’s been so fussy.
We’ll see what the doc says later this morning, but according to my handy-dandy otoscope, those little eardrums are awfully bulgy.
So I’ll leave you with a request for prayers (pretty please) and a couple of super-quick reviews. Hey, we’re all in this together, right? Here are a couple of things that have worked for me.
This is a picture of our reading room, minus most of the books that we have since replaced on the shelves.
Goodbye, sleek clean lines!
Hello, full-to-bursting family-friendly shelves!
Now then, if you look very carefully you will see that there is a stack of books that have been neatly arranged (for the photo) on the bottom shelf.
These are Baby George’s books, and he spends an awful lot of time perusing them.
Now here’s where Maggie’s Quick Pick comes in. I brought home this book from the library and George fell in head-over-heels in love with it. When I looked at the back cover, I noticed it was part of the “Begin Smart” series—none of which I own but all of which I wanted! So I did a search at the local library and requested every last book they had.
We have since had to return these books—sigh—but now George knows that this is his shelf and he will sit quietly with whatever books we leave for him there.
II. Maggie’s Quick Pick #2
And now, because I am out of blogging time, my second review has to be mostly visual.
This is for all the budding Frank Lloyd Wrights out there.
If you build it, they will come.
And then they will bowl it over.
Have a blessed Tuesday, everyone. Happy Feast!
