From Wyatt

Wyatt is a frequent two-year-old visitor at our house:

"Bicki, I don't have a baby at my house," says little Wyatt quite seriously as he tilts his head in deep concern.

"Oh, well, you should talk to your Mommy about that," I reason.

His big blue eyes get even bigger, "Can I just take this baby [Kate] to my house?"

Travel Tip

Ike's Great Aunt Kathy buys him books from the library sales every so often. This has resulted in shelves and shelves filled with enchantment. Recently she bought him some books and left them at Grandma's house. When we went over to Grandma's house, she thrilled Ike with reading him book after book. On the way home, Ike "read" to Kate and they giggled and laughed. She listened to him, enraptured by his voice and the attention.

Well, those books have not left the truck. We keep them out there for entertainment for our wee ones. When Bill drives, I read them story after story. When I drive, Ike does the reading. It's so much fun and brings lots of joy to their little souls.

We don't go on any long trips really, but the ride to Grandma's house, the grocery store, or to church is always exciting for them. I highly recommend keeping a few books stashed in the car! And a perk about books from the library sales is that the books come covered in plastic so they don't get beat up in the car!

When Kate got up from her nap the other day her hair was so crazy we had to take a picture.
