Cold invention

Found this

Want to try it

Heart flutter

Tiny, tonight at story time we were reading the planes book

Before I started reading, I asked you "Why are you so amazing?'

You looked at me and said "Because Mama loves me"

My heart almost burst
You are the loveliest boy in the world

Story without words

I think this helps with story telling

Tiny tells me what goes in the picture

After we draw it, we tell each other what story is happening

We can also change or add bits every time we look at the book
So our crayons put in a lot of work

Most of the stories are Tiny and Me

I try to give him is own adventures but when he looks at the page, he insists I draw a MAMA in the next picture

So I do

 It's fun fun fun

Tiny and I play one sided air hockey
This is one that he is so excited about
he squeals and screams while he is playing
The guy who was running the game would hit the machine so the puck would come out
Every time, Tiny would squeal and the man would laugh and laugh
Tiny was oblivious!

Long Time

I haven't had passion fruit in a long time

 Also Jamun
Something here gives me a reaction
Not sure what

Best Part of Today

Tiny singing
"Cus I like what I see, when I'm looking at me when I'm looking at the mirror"
Ala Mary J Blige Just Fine!
Me injecting the Ooooooooohhhh!

Per request

He asks for it

I write it
Red car and yellow humvee in the Brown, Black Town

If we can't find a story we want in the store or library, we write our own.
Tiny tells me what ought to happen in the story and I write it

Isn't that how life goes?

Create the one you want to live :)

So we rock this story stuff like its going out of style

More to come

 If we can imagine it, we can write it

Memory in the Moment

Tiny, we got some pics but yesterday we danced in rainbows
We were supposed to go out and I was getting ready
You were in the kitchen and you started to scream
'Mama, Mama rainbows!'
I run out and all over the floor and wall- Rainbows!
We dance dance dance, singing 'rainbows, rainbows rainbows'

We had a laughing fit
Reading planes
Lightning caused another fire...
Was it Lightnig Mcqueen?

We fiddled with your big train
It works! We squealed!!!

We share apples :)

We won some more wheel of fortune and 500 tickets at the wheelspin

We sat and watched the rain come down, then went to find the purple flowers

We counted to 100 while changing your clothes

We looked at the Australian monster trucks

You read the Planes race book to me while I was resting.

My baby love.

Map context

So many of the books talk about different countries

SO it was time to get a map

Anytime we hear a country name in a book, we refer to a map. Food and the counties the they are typically found, cook and grown, is a good starting point

Tiny has gotten really good at locating a lot of the countries

So NOW we can have our adventures and he knows exactly where he wants to go

He is really into finding Spain right now
Must be because of his football

Thank you Issa Rae

Two tiny bulldozers

Tiny has two tiny bulldozers
Different colors.
He keeps one that he likes best, the other he gives to me
Every day.
Out of all the toys he has, every day, these two tiny bulldozers
If I put mine down anywhere, he always finds it and gives it to me

I asked him
Why do you always want mama to hold this bulldozer?
He said
I love you

So It's important to him
I've been holding my bulldozer everyday since we won them at the games place together...

Dark nights

Issa Rae short films

For the next day

Tiny this is for you
Today you told your auntie:
"WHy you gotta drop dime on a brudda"
Auntie told me you didn't eat your whole banana and you gave her a dissatisfied look while she was telling me
For the better part of 15 minutes after that it was
"WHy you gotta drop dime on a brudda"
While we laughed
I take responsibility for that
No more slang for a while...

Dr. Maya Angelou's 3-Word Secret to Living Your Best Life ...

Just DO Right

Just do right
People will wish well for you and add their  prayers to your life

Do right.
Tiny, in this life, do right
Make every experience and interaction better for you having been in it.

It does no good to be 'smart' if you are cruel and unfeeling and uncaring
DO right
Keep a warm heart
Be charismatic NOT charming
One has virtue, one is nothing
Remember that
No matter what happens

Dr. Maya Angelou: "Love Liberates"

Let Me See

Here goes
People are going through so much
Silently for the most part
When I hear from them, I can only offer a shoulder, some soft words, my friendship still, and some laughs

 But just remember to be kind to people.
You don;t know what  someone s going through
Also you don't know what you my have to deal with and who will be a source of strength for you in later days, when you need it most

Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud - Maya Angelou
Be a blessing to somebody...
