From The Monkey’s Mouth: An Intimate Interview With MM, Age 2

I kept seeing this fun idea for a New Years / Yearly Interview with your kids, a fun way to keep track of their favorites and see how they change over the ages.

Me: Why go to the library for new books when I have books here that I’ve never read? DH: Ok. Me: It actually looks very interesting. I don’t read … Continue reading Has Anybody Seen My Willpower?
