Cat in the Bag

It rained and rained today;

I called a dear friend last minute and went to her house

read books to her oldest son (3 yrs old)

played with her 1 year old,

talked with her, drank tea...

I wrapped up books in this bag

books that

I bring for my bed time reading time with the

3 year old.

Today's picks were

Jesse bear what will you wear


The Story of Babar the little Elephant.

Cleo was looking in the books which I quickly rescued

thus rescuing Cleo

as the books were going to fall off with the bag handle around her neck


Gotta watch that Cleo Cat!

I let her play with the now empty bag,
which she is now content to sit on top of...
which means no more clean cat-hair-free bag.
But it is too cute to watch her play with it,
so cat in the bag it is...
I must say I most love reading to my friend's 3 year old boy.
I brought books that were mine when I was a kid
and have slowly been finding other books
for 2.00 each
which is a great deal for a classic kids book, like Babar!
The pile of papers in the corner of the Cleo in bag picture
are my future reading material
I will be glad when my interview prep is over!
So will Cleo I think...

She was just checking to see if you'd packed the one about the kittens who lost their mittens.

I love friends who come over and drink tea with me and read to my kids! You are so sweet. :)

Not that I am "the friend" in this post, of course! ;)

Ah, cats. Grin! I'm glad you were able to rescue her.
And, I love Babar.

No Cleo was looking for the book "I'm Not a Cat, Said Emerald" by Jane Thayer. That is one of our daughter's favorite books.

Our cat 'thinks he's people' just like Emerald did. You should read that book to friend's little boy. I am sure that Cleo would love it, too!
