Comic Relief

We had a great day. The kids have been getting along great and entertaining themselves well. But by the end of the day, you know, around supper time...its just HARD. I was craving some adult conversation. Or at least the cessation of little ones saying "mama, watch this" over and over. SO on the way to VBS we stuck in an audio book. Junie B Jones and the Little Monkey Business.

Let me say, she does say stupid and dumb excessively, in my opinion. We had a big talk about it. I told the kids that as soon as I hear those words come out of and little Jennings mouths, we would no longer listen to or read these books.

But man, I was laughing out loud. Its funny stuff! The kids were laughing, I was laughing...endorphins were released and we all felt better by the time we got to church.

I agree that she says stupid and dumb way too much, But I also agree that she is sticking hilarious. I read these books to my students but I usually substitute the words I don't like for the word "silly". I don't guess you can really do that with an audio book. I have a cousin that I swear this character was written about.

My students used to love those books but I have never read one!

I absolutely HATE we couldn't be there to laugh with you! You're right the time surrounding dinner time-bedtime is def. the hardest. Today though, I'm feeling that exhausted "I'm done" feeling a little early...like 11am early! AHHH...

Laughter is truly the best medicine! I've never heard of those books - maybe we'll have to check them out...

Our favorite Junie B. saying, which I think is from "Boo! And I mean it!" is "Back off clown!" I love her books, but that is the only thing Emma will let us read to her and I think we've read all of them at least 3 times. UGH! I'm ready for something else!
