Wimpy Kids in the Snow

It snowed a lot last weekend.  It was ridiculous, really, but snow and I have made up.  My allergies have been out of control, lately, and the snow came and washed away the pollen.  Snow and I are besties now.  My kids hadn't made a snowman all winter, so they took advantage of what we all hope will be their last chance.

Last week we finished reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney.  Hilarious.  The main character (Greg)  is just starting middle school, so it was a little mature for Chloe, but they both loved it.  Greg makes a lot of bad choices and isn't very nice to his best friend.  Of course, he gets what's coming to him, but because of the way it's written I think my kids were too young to understand when Greg was in the wrong.  I spent a lot of time saying, "Was that a good choice Greg made?  What would you have done?"  The kids had seen the movie before, but I hadn't watched it all the way through.  It's pretty funny.  Yep.  That's all I got. 

Funny story: So I bought Harrison the 5th Diary of a Wimpy Kid book (The Ugly Truth) when he did well on his report card.  He read it from cover to cover in one night.  Later, my sister told me it was all about puberty.  I read it myself.  Funniest book, ever.  But, yeah, it's totally about puberty and now Harrison will occasionally ask me questions like, "Mom, what's deoDORant?"

We've been doing our Mommy and Me Book Club for a whole year now!  It's still my favorite part of the day.  For a complete list of the books we've read, click HERE.

At least he's asking about deodorant now. Always better to learn about these things sooner rather than later. Nothing like having the stinky kid.
