Let's Read About Me - Make Your Child A Star Of His Own Book

As you know, Lil Man and I love to read. We usually read at least 3 books at naptime, and then 3 books at bedtime. He has his favorites, and he also enjoys getting new books. (And we are constantly adding new books to our collection).  But just this week, I couldn't help but burst with pride when he could read the entire Colors, Weather and Opposites books that we have. It just helps re-enforce to me the he is absorbing everything around him. And reading is a great way for kids to learn. 

Have you heard of  Let's Read About Me? The concept is simple. You create a customized book using your own photos. But instead of it just being a 'photo' book, these books are action books. You fill in the blanks and the pictures to create a customized book of your child in 'action'. 

I created one for Lil Man in the "Memory" and "Just My Size" styles. We chose the " ____ is Busy" for our book to create.  Here are just a few sample pages. 

I wish I had a picture of his face when he saw the book for the first time with photos of him as the subject. He totally loved it. We finished reading and he said 'again'. It was definitely a hit. 

The Let's Read About Me site is fairly easy to navigate. The challenging part for me was going through my photos and choosing the photos and captions. But after receiving the book, I'm glad that I took the time to make it. 

I did have a little technical difficulty with my photos being rotated the wrong direction. For some reason, even when I rotated them, they were still sideways. But, I saved my book, emailed someone at the company, and they went in and corrected the problem for me. So all is well. 

But we love this book, and the concept. I'm sure this will be one that we read over and over. 

Read to your kids. It's so so so very important.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
