Feeling Happy at Bedtime

For the longest time, our bedtime ritual included "What Shall We Do With the Boo-Hoo Baby," which I've mentioned elsewhere, and "I Feel Happy." I bought it on an impulse when the Border's Outlet near me was closing. I thought, "She'll never like it, but the pictures are cool." How was I to know that she would demand this story so much that Hubby and I would memorize the poem in a very short time. Even more encouraging, when reached the line "So I'll rest my little head," our daughter would consistently pat her own head. The book has a simple enjoyable poem and not-your-usual-baby-book illustrations.

I guess this means I'll need to find more Flavia books for my daughter.

Like I need an excuse to buy books.
