Stephanie, I saw your tweet about rereading Brown Bear, Brown Bear… Every parent has been where you are! One thing you might want to explore are books on CD. Check out Scholastic's website. When they begin school, most classes participate in their monthly book clubs, but they have opened their site to parents who wish to purchase things for home use. There are many wonderful books on CD, educational DVDs, tons of books, stuffed animals to match the books, big books, etc. Nothing will ever take the place of reading with Mom and Dad,but when they are having one of those kind of days that are driving you nuts, a little electronic help can preserve your sanity! scholastic.com Look to the right side of the screen and click on parents. I hope this helps!
Speaking of "favorite things"–I realized that as I lay down on my bed last night to catch up on the New Yorker, I have the exact quilt in the picture that your love bug is napping on. Ralph Lauren from a few years ago?
