Miss Clementine is no longer content to take our word for it that her toes are delicious. She wants to see for herself.
I think she likes 'em :-) If you listen you may be able to hear a nice slurping sound!
In other news, big congrats to all the winners of the ALA (American Library Association) awards today! If you don't follow children's literature closely, these are kind of the Academy Awards for us. I'm most excited that my friend and local Portland author LK Madigan won the Morris Award for a debut YA novel for her terrific book Flash Burnout which I have been intending to review here for weeks (and will, soon, but you don't have to wait for my review. Read it!). Yay, Lisa!
Oh, and guess what. Today, for the first time in over four months, Jim and I went to the movies! (We did bring Clementine with us to the theater once when she was a teeny-tiny sleep-lump.) Today my parents babysat so we could go see Avatar in the theaters -- it really is a theater movie, not a Netflix movie. Ohmygosh it was so awesome! Love-love-loved it. I was so ridiculously excited to be en route to the movies this afternoon. I LOVE the movies, the dark theater, the previews, the opening moments. Magic. I've missed it, and there are a lot of movies I want to see! But, giant bummer: the show sold out while we were standing in line. ARRRRRG! We considered going to see a different movie, but I had my heart set on a big fat sci-fi/fantasy epic, so we picked up lunch for my parents, went home to eat and tank the baby up again, then went to a later showing at another theater. Thank you, mom and pop!
