I love it and I hate it.
As the year draws to a close, it’s “Best Of” season, where everyone publishes their ‘Best Books” of 2016 and I am reminded of how few 2016 publications I have read. See the “Browsing” section for lots of links!
A couple of library trips. My 3yo’s preschool is across the road from the library but I only have about 10-15 minutes to grab books in between dropping off my kindergartener at PM K class, then driving to preschool to pick up the 3yo. So I can’t quite manage hitting both the adult and kids section at the same time! Especially because I try to flip through the pages of some of the picture books -just to check if there are torn pages/stains/missing pages and also to have a general idea of the storyline. Of course there are plenty that I know will be good reads especially those in a series or by a beloved author like Ezra Jack Keats and Mo Willems. (Also if you guys have Amazon Prime Video, Keats’ The Snowy Day has been made into an adorable animated holiday special, and with Boyz II Men singing!)

The Grand Tour. Mad Men Season 1. Totoro (with the kids, again and again)
I had a turkey and cream cheese bagel this morning for breakfast. I like savoury foods for breakfast usually, and because I get hungry really quickly, the protein really helps fill me up.
