Slice of Life: I want this one and this one and this one!

After a year of not subbing at all, I notified the district this week to take me off the sub list. I may be out of the classroom for good, but between a middle school book club and three grandsons, I find I'm still immersed in books.

I spend three days a week with grandsons Robby (4 months) and Jack (2 1/2 years). Our days are filled with walks around the neighborhood, reading books, watching one show a day, playing in the backyard, drawing on paper on the easel, messing around with Play-Doh, driving numerous small vehicles, and making nests for owls.
Big brother reads to little brother!

Given that my grandson was not allowed to watch TV until just recently with the quota of only one 30 minute PBS kids' show (Mr. Rogers, Daniel Tiger, or Sesame Street) a day, you can imagine my surprise when I heard him chanting this phrase, "I want this one, and this one, and this one, and this one, and this one." Thinking that it was a bit early for the Christmas or birthday wants, I glanced over to see Jack looking at the back flap of a library book. 
Jack watches book jackets for suggestions of more titles.  And this Grandma is delighted to comply with his request for this one and this one and this one and several more!
