We were playing around after tubby time tonight trying to see if Andrew would fit into Eva’s old Winnie-The-Pooh costume for Halloween. He does but would not let us put it onto him. He fought like crazy.
While we were wrestling with Andrew and giving up on getting him into the costume, Eva put the costume on. This is a costume for an 18-24 mo old child. She can still wear it. It is a little small, which is to be expected but she can still put it on. She put on the costume and then this fedora hat from Target and started making silly faces. This shot makes her look like those old cartoons where someone had a toothache. That was not my interpretation of it but rather my friend’s dad when he saw the photo on Facebook. And yep, he’s right, that is exactly what it looks like.
And this sorta makes sense as Eva has been complaining about wiggly teeth hurting her lately.
I was asked to try out Sparkup – The Magical Book Reader and review it. One was sent to me to set up and use.
I love reading to the kids. Each night I read approximately 6 books to Andrew to get him down to sleep. Eva is down to one or two or chapters from a book. Eva goes to bed listening to the Barefoot Books Podcast and so she listens to stories all night. Reading to them at bedtime is one of my very favorite activities.
The thing is, I can’t do it all week. Working weekend nights has been good for being there all week long day and night but it stinks for not being there on the weekend nights.
While I can’t be there physically with the kids, my voice can be there and read them their favorite stories. With Sparkup I can record any one of my kids’ favorite books and they can play it whenever they want. Continue reading Sparkup – Read Your Kids Any Book Even When You Are Not There
