(written two nights ago and I forgot to hit publish. doesn't surprise me considering)
It's late. Midnight. I can't sleep. Evan is at the hospital (sigh, story of life) and that means I'm wide-eyed wanting my man to hold me so I can fall asleep.
So in this delirious state I thought, "I should write a blog post!" But what should I write about?
The first thing that came to mind.
Yep. You read right.
That's what happens when you've been working 70 hours a week on your new business. (and truth be told, 70 might be an UNDER estimation)
But here's the thing. I think I've found the best children's books ever. Have you guys seen the Pigeon series? They are HILARIOUS. I love the humor, I love the vocabulary, I love the message (it's ok to be sassy, but ultimately nice and have a good laugh). They're just all around fabulous.
We own "the Duckling gets a cookie" and Liliana has asked for it every single night for the last 2 weeks since we bought it. Some nights I tell her no, just because I don't want to ruin the book for myself! haha. So ... we read it every other night instead. :) That's expert parental balancing there for you.
We're getting others for Christmas from family members and Santa found her two of them in Spanish! Here are some that I DESPARATELY want Liliana to read and giggle to:
SO in this delirious state I discovered something ... an epiphany of sorts.
Guess who is having a pigeon themed birthday party?
And I'm going to have to design it all myself from scratch b/c there is LITERALLY NOTHING on etsy. But that's ok. My gal's worth it.
Here's a sample of one for a good laugh:
Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late
I don't know much else for now ... except for the fact that she's going to have a big cookie her cake in honor of "the duckling gets a cookie." And that's good enough for now.
Sweet dreams (pigeon ones).
