I'm so excited. It's like early Christmas! I bought this book off Amazon and it arrived today. I started reading it to the girls at lunch. There are very little pictures, it reads more like a chapter book. We actually only read the introduction which is an explanation of what History even is. The girls sat in rapt attention. I usually finish eating lunch before they do, and so after I eat I've been using that time to read to them. Izzie was taking teeny tiny bites of her sandwich so that I'd keep reading!
And on a funny note... this morning we were getting ready for gymnastics and Maddie started to throw a fit about her dress that she just took off. But then it was a fit about her panties and a fit about her shoes and I was picking up on a pattern that she was just gonna throw a fit about anything. So I told her, "You wanna go to Nanna's while Izzie goes to gymnastics?" Izzie gets very alarmed and said, "Maddie STOP crying, she WILL do it!!!!" Referring back of course to the fact that she had to miss the Halloween party while Maddie got to go. Sometimes when you have a twin, only one has to suffer for them both to learn a lesson because Maddie dried up those tears pretty quickly after that!
