Children and problems

Sorry this is so late but my youngest daughter had surgery so I'm going to make this a bit about her. She was our holiday child. She arrived just before Thanksgiving, as a nearly four year old via adoption. There were problems since she was an abused child but she had a beautiful smile and was a beautiful young girl. What I remember most was her excitement at her first Christmas with her and how she was so excited about her presents including a black baby doll that was just like her. She may still have that doll somewhere in a closet. She's now the mother of four and has overcome all her problems.

One of the books I gave her at her first Christmas was called "Never Tease a Weasel." I can still recite many of the words since I read it so many times.

What about you? Do you have a particular book that one of your child listened to over and over again? I believe all my children had a favorite one and strangely enough I remember a bit of each of those books.

  1. I remember one my boys liked "Hands, hands, fingers, thumbs." I don't know if that was the title but they had it memorized.
