Just a mom raising The Boy (adopted from Guatemala) along with my fabulous husband (MFH). I am a shoe whore, especially of the high heeled variety. Hence, the nickname.

Choosing a book by it's cover

The Boy has Library every Wednesday. I always look forward to seeing what book he chooses because more and more it's one that he and his dad can enjoy together - the wonders of motocross, motorcycles, etc. Plus, as a child, I looked so forward to library every week and I have tried to instill my love of books (even though I currently have no time for recreational reading, with the exception of his nightly story) into my child.

Last week I opened his backpack to find An.Inconvenient.Truth by that one time vice.president that invented the internet.

Now, as a librarian, would you let a five year old choose that book? Wouldn't you try to steer him in a different direction?

When I asked him why he chose that book, he said, "I just liked the pictures."

At least he didn't lie and say he got it for the articles!

    Funny, funny kid. My husband has that kind of honesty, too (but not for anything that vp has written).

    How funny. And yes, you would think the librarian might ask him about it.

    Wait till you see my post about my son's recent choice: The Hindenburgh Disaster.
