Sorry it has been so long since my last review, but lately life in our household has been hectic. And a little strange. First, my mommy and daddy started asking me if I would like to have a baby brother. I’m not sure what a baby brother is, but I try to be cooperative as often as possible, so in response to the question, I always say, “Okay.” Then some men came to our house and started tearing up the big, messy room upstairs. Now Daddy asks me if I want to sleep up there with Bennett. Huh? Who’s Bennett? And why would I want to sleep upstairs with him? Sounds kind of scary to me. My answer to that question is an unequivocal “No.” Cooperation is fine in its place, but no need to get carried away.
The best thing that has happened over the past few weeks, though, is that I turned two. Two!!! Can you believe it? And for my second birthday, Aunt Missy and Uncle Brandon gave me a terrific new book by Mo Willems entitled Should I Share My Ice Cream?
Of course, my immediate reaction to that
question is “no way,” but remember I’m working on cooperation these days, so I
decided to give the book a read-through and see what it had to say on the
subject. I’m glad I did. Not only did I read it once but about
twenty-one-hundred times just to be sure I got the message right. It seems that
sharing is a good idea. Not only does it pay off in the event your own ice
cream cone falls on the ground, but also sharing ice cream with a good friend can double the pleasure of the experience. In addition to the great story, I enjoyed
the simple, comic-like illustrations of Gerald the elephant (who, by the way, wears glasses), his friend
Piggie, and LOTS and LOTS of pastel -colored ice cream cones!

It's a particularly gripping moment in the plot
when Gerald's ice cream is about to fall on
Yum! I’m making myself hungry. Think I’ll close this post and go have a snack. Maybe some ice cream.
