Helping boys with the sprinkler = impromptu shower... and wet t-shirt contest
Blackout is the story of what happens then the lights go out in the city. Busy becomes relaxing, frightening becomes fun, and play comes before work.
This is an adorable story about how a blackout can bring everyone together—parents who were too busy to play join the game, neighbors who hardly knew each other became friends, and businesses handed out treats.
Author/illustrator John Rocco has created a really great story with cool images that perfectly capture citylife from the eyes of a child. The illustrations cover the entire page, leaving room only for imagination. The story is full, yet told with few words, great for early readers.
This is the perfect summer book—perhaps to read by flashlight when the lights go out :)
John Rocco is an amazing illustrator who has worked with the likes of Whoopie Goldberg and Disney Corp, and on projects such as Shrek, the Percy Jackson series, and DisneyQuest.
I have 1 (that's ONE!!) unread email in my inbox. How long can that last?
Do you freak out when you have too many? I get twitchy! Unread emails are like a digital to-do list for me, they don't get marked as read till they're taken care of, so a full inbox does not mean I'm loved, but rather that I'm busy! Love when I'm all caught up! :)

"Am I the only mom who finds herself with a screaming kid in a store just when she bumps into a beautiful mother in a pretty maxi dress, with perfect hair and sweet, smiling toddler? Aye yae yae!" ~ a great quote from a great mom (thanks SB!)
"Maybe, by asking ourselves what if? we can also, at long last, ask ourselves, "what next?" And then, we can point ourselves toward the future, not just the past."
My boys are doing nothing to discourage the "Are they twins?" question by insisting to dress alike (or similar) every day.
In one store last week, we heard it so many times that Little Guy turned around and asked me, "Mommy, are we twins?"
My son already calls his little toy laptop his iPad, so I'm thinking this will be a must-have for letters to Santa...
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
