I went to Chapters today to buy some books for the cottage and ended up buying these for my daughter.
(Fairyopolis is of course secretly for me). Did anyone read The Flower Fairies poems when they were kids? Loved them.
I had to be fair so I picked up these for the boys.
Jack was seriously overcome when I gave him that Transformer book. He wants to be Optimus Prime. Apparently being able to transform into a semi truck is a really coveted skill if you're 6. I could totally explain to you the epic battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons over their planet Cybertron. But I won't. Just know that I could because I really am that cool! When I gave it to him he actually said "Suh-weet!", followed by, "I love you Mommy...and not just because you bought me this book either". Which of course means that is TOTALLY why he is feeling the love.
Ben is enthralled by skeletons right now and launched into a long discussion at dinner about all of our skulls and what colour they are underneath our skin. Awesome dude. He is really channelling Napoleon Dynamite these days.
Since I blew my book budget, I decided to get my books at the library. I was accosted by a very talkative and very crazy old guy sitting outside. We had a nice chat about cars and Tim Horton's and he guessed my name is Nicole. (It isn't).
Then inside as I was perusing biography I was approached by a Mike Drudge lookalike who started an animated (one-sided) conversation about Carlos Castaneda. Who knew the public library was so fun?
It was around this time that Daisy looked up at me quizzically and asked if there were a lot of weird people at the library. To which I affirmed that indeed there were.
Here's what I got based on your suggestions.
Thanks for all the feedback. I will definitely check out the others at a later date.
My friend and I went to see Under the Same Moon tonight. Mostly because there was really nothing else. It was enjoyable, cute, touching.
I'm away for a week and may or may not have interwebs availability.
Have a great week!
