The book for Whoopsie arrived yesterday, much to the tribe's delight. I had to fight with both The Princess and Bubba-Love for permission to open the package. Inside we found the story about Edgar.
Mini-Husband, in his new found role as "reader extraordinarie" took it upon himself to read to Whoops about this little boy who isn't quite like other kids. A great story about how everyone has something different and unique about them.
The Princess really liked it and was thrilled to see on the opening page, the list of the books that have been sent to all the babies since 2005. She quickly recognized the book Bubba-Love got back in 2006 and wanted to know why we didn't get the books in 2007 and 2008.
I explained how the books only get sent to babies born in those years to which she replied that I was basically a slacker and should have done my part to keep the collection complete. A perfect moment to explain how a library is a lot quieter than yearly newborns at our house.
All in all, a great first package for the Whoops. Not only is it something she'll never outgrow, but it's something that all of us can enjoy. Thank you, Conseil General for making reading, and sharing, not just a priority but fun for all us here at the B&B.
