Mischievous Monday: Books are for Reading



Its that time once again for our  Mischievous Monday Blog Hop.  You can join in on the fun of our blog hop by clicking HERE.


So what exactly did I do this time? Keep on reading to find out.

I have a reading circle where I sit and read my books. Its usually just one book at a time but this time the book mommy left me with wasn't interesting enough so I decided that I wanted to add a little bit more to the collection. What I didn't realize was that getting more books means making a big mess in the process.

Mommy came back and caught me in the process but that didn't make a difference to me. I was having fun!


This book is not keeping my attention

There has to be something in here to read!

This might be good. Forget about the others on the floor!

How about just one more? 

Oooooh! I think I finally see what I want! 

It's all about the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

So after making a huge mess on the floor guess who had to clean it up? You got that right, the not so happy mommy!

  2. Awwww. Mommies always have to clean up after the kids finish having fun. Got to love that she is so interested in the books, though, that is awesome.

  10. She is adorable. I can relate to how fast a mess can be made (times four!) Our four two and a half year old toddlers can try out every book and toy in sight in no time flat. They get to be part of the clean up (but that takes much longer than if I did it by myself!)

    1. Yes it does. Mommy says its faster doing it by herself too but she still makes me help. :) ♥ Madison

  14. Books are so much fun! This mommy doesn't like cleaning up either, so I'm keeping toys in little toy bins and bringing just 1 out a day for right now. I'm starting early on the clean up teaching too - have to make it a game for both of us :-)

  23. This looks so familiar! It seems to be a constant until after the age of 3. At least it gives grumpy Mommies a chance for exercise - bend and stretch, bend and stretch!
    Have a great week!

    1. Yes mommy sure do get some exercise in. It's my good deed of the day. :) ♥ Madison

  24. Little Miss Madison, what a great choice of stories! Everyone knows that we girls love to have choices, but next time... you'd better help clean up so that your mom won't stop buying you all those cool books! Don't tell her that I told you though... it can be our little secret!
