This is Sometimes How We Spend Our Mornings

Lukka loves our camera. So much so that I often think we should get him a child-one, although real....then I look at the prices at Target and think, "yeah, in a million years!" So we let him play with ours. A lot. Here was a photoshoot done by The Bug of Me and Anikka.
"A little off, let's see, I think I need to get closer".
"Hmm. I think I frightened her with my excellent camera skills. Oh well, sorry mom!"
"Mom! Stop trying to help, I can do it myself".
"See? Two smiles!"

Children's Book Review: Help Me, Mr. Mutt!

This week on our trip to the library, I noticed that the entire shelf was filled with brand-new books. A good thing, for our tiny library (soon to be shutting it's door, sadly), being the least visited in Lincoln; books there are in poor condition or not at all recent. We picked up all the new ones that were Lukka's level for a bedtime stories, and this one happened to be my favorite. I think it would be best for 3+, instead of his under 2 status, but if I were to write my own children's book (a goal for me...ahhh...someday!) this is along the lines of what I would write. It is a humorous tale about an "Ask Ann Landers"-type-character, Mr. Mutt, and the advice he gives about certain *ahem* possibly annoying doggie traits. :) With replies written by a Queen Cat, this book is very entertaining for child and adult.

Read any good kids' books lately? Need a book for yourself? Hop on over to Our House blog, where I regularly do movie and book reviews.
