Today was a nice relaxing day with the boy and I. We didn't do much but we did spend some quality time together. A few of my favorite moments were:
- John being a snuggle bunny today, so there was a lot of reading and laying around watching Elmo
- John figuring out he can suck on his toes. He hadn't done this since he was a newborn so it was funny to see him revisit it. (he was on my lap so I couldn't get a picture)
- John laying across me in our orange chair, with his feet propped up and crossed.
- John wanting to dance but only if we were holding hands and going around in circles.
We got John a new book today about being a big brother. It wasn't the one that I went looking for, but it is a good one and I am excited for us to read it together.
John is a little young for this book but I love it. I knew that a few of the teachers have read it and use it in their classrooms. If you have never read it...you should. It is about how everyone has a carries around an invisible bucket and it holds our feelings. You can either be a bucket filler or a bucket dipper. The jist of it is that you should be filling people's buckets with compliments and good gestures. I am going to use it in my classroom, but I am also going to use it at home. I am currently looking for cute decorated bucket ideas so that we can have them in our house.
