Family Traditions

I was recently reading a blog and the topic was about family traditions. It got me to think about what kind of traditions my family has. I’m not sure if this is a tradition but it’s probably the one that my daughter will carry over when she starts her family.

Ever since my daughter was little she would get such awful colds and flu. So you can imagine how bad bedtime was. It was so hard for her to fall asleep. When I was pregnant with her I had started buying books for her library. One of them was The Winnie the Pooh book set. Well lets just say Pooh Bear and Christopher Robin helped her get through the night. When she got a cold or flu at bedtime I would read a couple of chapters and off to sleep she went. She must have been dreaming of Pooh and friends because she would always fall asleep with a smile on her face. I have read all 4 books to her about 10 times. That’s how sick my poor baby will get.


Now she is a teenager and she doesn’t get as sick as when she was little but when she does she still asks “Is it time for you to read to me yet?”  It’s not Pooh Bear that she wants and anymore. Now it’s Alice in Wonderland. Who doesn’t love Alice right?


I wonder if when she becomes an adult will I still be reading to her when she’s not feeling well. Um yeah! Of course I will. I wonder what story I will be reading to her then.

Thanks for stopping by

Pretty Head Rachel Card

Time for a quick card share.

This card measures 4” x 4”. I think this is the smallest card I have made so far. I used papers from DCWV All Dressed Up stack. The digi stamp is Pretty Head Rachel from The Greeting Farm. I added ribbon roses and a white rose from Recollections.

I love Pretty Head Rachel. She looks so innocent and yet has attitude. Hmm. Sound like my teenager.


Have a great day!

What I’ve Read This Week

My daughter bought a book about a couple of years ago and to my surprise she loved it. My daughter hates reading. Well she told me that I should definitely read this book. Actually what she said was “Mom you need to read this book. It’s amazing!”. So finally 2 years later she slapped the book onto my lap and said “READ”. I picked it up started reading and I couldn’t put it down.

This is one of the best YA books I have read in a very long time. And yes I’m over 40 and I read YA books. There’s magic, there’s romance, sisterly love and father and daughter turmoil's. It’s got everything!

So if you’re looking for a good summer read pick this book up. Or get it for your daughter. Hey! Get it for the both of you.
