So, my mother in law sent over a bag of goodies for Little Guy. Footie pajamas, which he loves and refuses to take off until we make him, an adorable "Kiss me I'm Irish" shirt, a pair of snow pants, and a set of "Hit Stix".
These are drumsticks that make noise no matter what you beat them on. He has tried them out on the wall, the floor, the doors, a car, a box, his bed, and anything alse he can find. In fact, our house is chock full of taps and beats and other wonderful drum-type of stuff. I must remember to thank her.
For Christmas, I bought Big Guy a set of books: The Temraire series by Naomi Novik. We both burned through those books at record speed, though I finished the series first. According to Big Guythis is due to the fact that I read "freakishly fast". I disagree. It may be speedy, but I read everything. Because I managed to finish the books in record time, we discussed what series we were going to purchase next to read and have decided on George R.R. Martin's Song of Fire and Ice. That was why we went to Barnes and Noble yesterday.
As far as the new series, I'm reading the first book, A Game of Thrones, and made it to page 124 last night. I told Big Guy that it may be true that I devour books. His response was to say no. Devouring would imply I stopped to chew. I simply suck them in like spaghetti. I know I read fast, but I do read everything. That's something most people don't understand. I'm not just skimming, I am actually reading. I do love reading though.
