A Week with a Baby Bird

I just got back from spending a week with my niece, E, who is officially a big sister. She is pictured above, giving a concert for me and Papa Bear, of the Berenstain Bear family. Periodically throughout every day we had to look for Papa Bear, and he was usually found sitting in this room. So, naturally, a couple of songs were sung. Heaven forbid if Aunt Di sat at the piano, though!

I had such a great time with E reading, playing grocery shopping, coloring, painting and squishing play dough. Her imagination is running at full blast, so it was amazing to see what she would some up with each day. There's nothing quite like reading with a little one on your lap, is there?

Excellent pic. There is NOTHING as special as reading with a little one. I miss it, but at Xmas, even my 14 y.o. "cool kid" let me read our Xmas story books with him. Memories to cherish.

Did I tell you already that I used to have an imaginary friend as a child called "Thing Thing"?
