He Keeps Waking Up Early

March 24, 2006 @ 3:50 am | Filed under:

Wonderboy, that is. He has ‘surped my morning blog time, but that’s quite all right, because he only has a week or two left to be the baby of this family, and the extra cuddle time is a treat for both of us.

Commencing the cuddles at 5 a.m. is perhaps the teeniest bit excessive…(yawn)…

Anyway, he’s been in my lap for over an hour, and the other kids will be down any minute. I’ll post later, but for now, here are some links that caught my eye—

Anastasia Suen reports on trends in children’s books.

Astronomy picture of the day. (HT: Daryl.)

Florida is considering a move to require high-school freshman to declare a major, a notion that many of us find ludicrous.

Chicken Spaghetti profiles dragon books.

Book Moot has some thoughts about a San Antonio school superintendent’s decision to disallow a school-wide reading of The Handmaid’s Tale.

Becky features books about grammar. (UPDATE: broken link fixed!) Karen Edmisten has thoughts of her own about the benefits of modeling proper grammar. (Love that Ramona!)

While you’re at Karen’s site, don’t miss her posts on how you are what you read.
