The Foggy Foggy Forest

Some days I wish I could relax enough that I could enjoy my kids again.  For example, stop worrying about how well they ate dinner or whether dinner covered all of the eighty nutritional food groups, whether they got their homework done or if they did, was it even done right, whether they got a bath or if they smell and look clean enough that maybe I could put it off until tomorrow?  All the while, I'm begging them to quit fighting, quit touching each other, quit touching my stuff, and screaming for them to stop screaming! I start to feel as if I am walking through a foggy foggy mine field of parental DON'Ts!

Well if you every catch yourself feeling this same way, then DO grab this book.  You'll be reminded that laughter is the best medicine, and your kids, no matter how malnourished, are miniature comedians.  I can't tell you how comical it was listening to my kids guess what was on the next page.  I LOVED reading and rereading this book.  Even once you know what awaits you it is fun to have contests to see who can come up with the funniest or craziest idea!

Nick Sharratt, you are a genius!  This is one of my favorite books and it doesn't necessarily have to be a Halloween book but it is definitely fitting for this time of year!  So get comfy with your kids and trust me, by the end of this book you will feel love and admiration for your little goblins flowing back into your heart.
