Pearls Before Swine

“Shut mouf, Burt” is really starting to litter our everyday conversation.


Our new favorite, edifying comic.

Child:  “Why do I have to do a paragraph?  It’s too hard, I wrote one yesterday, I lost my pencil….”

Sophisticated Parent:  “Shut mouf and write paper, Burt!”



I just placed over 70 Christmas holds. If you find yourself at the library, and there aren’t any good Christmas picture books, it’s because I have them.  All of them.

But don’t worry, you can be a jerk too. RAR has a great list to pull from, and don’t forget the suggestions in the comments.  Just a reminder that it’s not too late to place holds. It’s really the only way.  I love how all our children read all the picture books we have in the house.  Even if there are 70.  And nothing says Christmas like being neck deep in books.  🙂
