Tearing it up

Mary Clare does love her books. In the morning, she takes her milk and Cheerios and sets up camp in Chip's bathroom with a stack of carefully selected books. Her seat of choice? The scale. It's quite hilarious and unbelievably adorable. And it's also a godsend, because all of that sipping, munching and reading keeps her occupied while we get ready for work.

Deeming her worthy of "big girl books," I recently added some books with paper pages into the mix of board books. I previously kept these set aside for when Chip or I would read with her, for fear that she might go on a page tearing spree. For the most part, she has taken her newfound responsibility in stride. With one exception: She has torn the hell out of Mother Goose Manners.

But I guess I had that one coming.

  1. Haha, that sounds so funny! I thought you were going to say her seat of choice was the toilet. :)
