SkippyJonJones

Liam took this picture of me, after I made him suffer through a practice run with me at home.

My friend Kim lent me the book "SkippyJonJones" by Judy Schachner, feeling certain that I would love it and be able to put some "story-lady magic" to it. So, doped up on my antibiotics, for many days, I made it to Ben's class at the end of the week to read (the parents were asked to come in and be guest story-tellers this month). Well, I have to say, I think it was a roaring success, if for no other reason than the fact that I had such a blast experimenting with my Mexican Chihuahua accent (I have zero Spanish-speaking ability, folks, so it was a true experiment). Ben was rather bitter that I did not choose a book that he and I had already read a million times, but I thought branching out was good, and even though he'll never admit it, his dimples were flaring from cheek to cheek when he saw how much his classmates got into participating with me.

So if you need a good laugh, check this one out.

Thanks Kim!

About Me

My photo
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
Forty-three year-old, mother and staunch advocate of four young children, passionate warrior of truth and self, finding the soul in each day, sharing my struggles and triumphs as I live them. Mostly I do this for me, so my thoughts don't race as much at night as they used to. But I also give this to those of you who need to know, in any or every way, that you are not alone.
