Some days, there are well-laid plans for an early naptime. These plans may include (but are certainly not limited to) such undoubtedly enjoyable and productive things as catching up on a bit of work, maybe even casting on for a new knitting project.
But then again, some days there are small people awake at 5:30 in the morning, who are miraculously still awake and quite busy at nearly 11. So, so busy. And knitting gets set aside, replaced by some early day dinner prep in the event that the baby never sleeps again but people still want to eat. I like to plan for any and every contingency.
In other news, Melitsa from Raising Playful Tots invited me to do an interview for her podcast recently. You can hear me ramble on about a wide variety of topics from the challenges of being The Play Dough Lady to our clear inability to limit our library haulings. Plus, I always think that after reading someone's words, it is kind of fun to hear their voice too. You can listen to the podcast here.
And, today's theme on the Picture Book Month calendar is "imagination." Here are a few Library Monday posts about books that I think are particularly well-positioned in the imagination department. Enjoy!
