My kids love to laugh and giggle, joke and wiggle. The following book is a favorite of theirs at the moment: “Last Night I Had A Laughmare.” Although we wind down at night and read (and sing) in bed as a relaxation method, this book provides one last chuckle.

Wordless Wednesday ~ 7/13 ~ LINKY

After his sister left for her dad’s last week, E was missing his “Tee-Tee”. He went into her room and decided to rummage through her drawers.
