It's a beautiful day...

"I don't want my picture taken
Not today or any day!
Mommy got me all cleaned up
But I want to run and play!
All right, I'll smile and make a face
That Mommy wants to see.
There now, please! Just let me be!"

The older they get the more you hold on
But before you know it the day is gone.
Cherish each smile, each laugh, and each tear
You blink your eyes and one day becomes a year.

Parent Reading Day

Today, I am going to my son's school to read to his kindergarten class. I have chosen a book that is currently VERY popular at our house. The book is, I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont. It goes a little something like this:

One day my mama caught me paintin' pictures on the floor and the ceiling and the walls and the curtains and the door, and I heard my mama holler like I never did before..."YA AIN'T A-GONNA PAINT NO MORE!"

I ain't gonna paint no more, no more, I ain't gonna paint no more. That's what I say...but there ain't no way that I ain't gonna paint no more. So I take some red and I paint my...Head! Now I ain't gonna paint no more. Aw, What the heck! Gonna paint my...Neck! Now I ain't gonna paint no more. Still, I just can't rest till I paint my...CHEST! Now I ain't gonna paint no more.

And on and on....
