Wow! As I read this book for my own personal use as the mother of a soon-to-be toddler, I am finding so many nuggets that apply to me as a teacher librarian of Kindergarten- 8th grade students. Seeking “first to understand” this upcoming year school year is my goal.

How can it already be time to think about potty training?!

AkashaVampie How old is ur little one? Mine just turned 2. I'm trying to get it started slowly! Haha 4mo
Librarylady3 Turning two in September! This book recommended training between 20 and 30 months old. I am not ready to start just yet but doing the research so that I will be ready. 4mo

I really wanted to love this book but after countless times of picking it up and putting it down over the last few years, 20 chapters in, I am calling it. I just can‘t invest in the lost love angle they present. She left him to be in an open marriage! Had it been a book about the book barge, I would have loved it. 😂

This book was a lovely read and I thoroughly enjoyed it BUT...I felt like it ended in the middle of the story and should have had at least a third more chapters than it did. I wish there was a sequel.

Practical Magic | Alice Hoffman

Mehso-so

This is one of the few books that I feel like the movie might have been better. It was okay but after reading and loving The Rules of Magic, I was disappointed. Also, I found inconsistencies in the aunts‘ storyline and Maria‘s story between the books irritating. Since the same person wrote both books, there shouldn‘t have been such large holes even if Rules was written after Practical Magic.

Traveling back home with my honey and our little man. Read the prequel on the way here and now this on the way back. Have to say, this book barely resembles the movie and is a lot more crass than the prequel but it is interesting so far.

Post-miscarriage has been rough on my mental health. I have talked to the doc and will be doing some counseling for anxiety and grief. One of the things I am striving to do is find little ways throughout the day to rebalance my emotions. Stolen bits of time, like this time before my sweet boy wakes up or while he is napping, that I do the things for me like drink coffee while it is still warm, reading, journaling, yoga, etc. matter. #selfcare

When the perfect song that speaks to our soul comes on people sometimes say “God was my DJ this morning.” This time though, God was my librarian. I had this book on my TBR shelf for two years and picked it up to read after my miscarriage two weeks ago. This book made my heart smile with its beautifully complex characters and story. It is a story of more than survival, it is a story of learning to really live.

He is sweet and silly and 21 months old today but soon we will be in for those volatile boundary pushing years of 2-4...or 2-40 in some cases. 🤣 I want to be a responsive and proactive mom and teacher not a reactive mom that yells first and asks why later. Great book study for me and the hubbs.

Robert Galbraith is the pseudonym of none other than Harry Potter creator, J.K. Rowling. I would have never known it was written by her but is a well written piece of crime fiction that I am glad is the first in a series.

With a 4 month old, the only time I get to read is at 2 and 5am when I‘m pumping and he is sleeping. Currently, I‘m halfway through this awesome book that tells the story of Dan Harris, a TV news reporter, and how he has used meditation to deal with anxiety, stress, and life in general. It is a very well written and funny take on an important topic.

My first non-baby related book since giving birth to my little baby boy three weeks ago. I started having contractions at the library while teaching my middle schoolers. I thought they were Braxton-Hicks so I taught the whole following day as well as my labor progressed. He wasn‘t due for three more weeks after all! After school on the 2nd day I went to the hospital and 11 hours later our boy was here! Glad momma finally went to the hospital!

Definitely one that keeps you interested throughout. It starts out being told traditionally for the first couple chapters and then shifts to being told backwards in chronology. I think the way it was told led to a more interesting and twisting plot line than if the same story was told in a more linear fashion.

New pregnancy read came today. The cover concerns me. Is she taking the baby to work? I can't do that. He is eating the phone cord! Danger! How does her hair look so amazing? My hair will never look that good post baby. Is that a requirement for this all to work out? #alltheworries #newbook #preppingforbabyk

Finished another recycled book page art piece. I took the cute letters my cousin got me and then cut out classic children's literature characters from old books, decoupaged them on to the cardboard from an old paperback picture book for stability, then cut them out and affixed them to the letters. Can't wait to hang them in Will's room! #recycledart #bookpageart #nurseryinprogress #babykoct2017

I finished Into the Water the other day! It was 3.5 out of 5 stars. There were lots of twists, turns, and suspense. The ending, however, left me wanting more of an explanation. Still, all in all, an enjoyable read. The picture is of my mom enjoying some reading time with me during her visit.
