Brush Your Teeth

Greyson says some funny things. We remember some of them and forget others. Lately, one of the funniest (in my opinion - probably not Luke's) goes like this...

Greyson: Climbs in to our bed and goes to Luke for a cuddle. As he cuddles with Luke, he sniffs and pushes Luke away. Then he says, "Daddy, you NEED to brush your teeth." 

Seriously, it's hilarious (to me). lol. This morning (Valentines Day), Greyson goes to give Luke a hug and tell him Happy Valentines Day. While he is hugging him, he says " Daddy, brush your teeth!".

Just a little funny thing...

**On another note, we now have a swimmer. Greyson officially swam three feet by himself without any floatation devices. Fun stuff. =)

January Reading Goals :: Completed

I finished five books over January. Three of the five were books that had some meaning and the other two were historical romances. 

My thoughts:

This was a good read. I got a bit bored and thought there was a little too much writing for the book idea. That being said, I have taken a few of the ideas in the book and have implemented them in my life. Overall, I really did like it. 

I really liked this book. I love reading about war (any of them) and the people that were intimately involved in them. She was a holocaust survivor and her story was very sad. To be honest, I couldn't put it down. 

Luke and I had some great talks during this book. So, I give it a high rating. It was a bit dry with lots of scientific evidence/research, but some of the thoughts and ideas were very interesting.

The other two books I read were:
An Unlikely Countess by Jo Beverly (didn't like)
One Man's Love by Karen Ranney (just ok)

Year to Date:

1. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
2. All But My Life by Gerda Weissmann Klein
3. Nurture Shock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman
4. An Unlikely Countess by Jo Beverly
5. One Man's Love by Karen Ranney
