Hairy Conversation with Zak

Mom:...Zak ...about your hair? It's getting awful long!

Zak: it's fine Mom...there are guys with hair way longer than mine...just be quiet about it.

Mom: Well it swoops to the side and it reminds me of Justin Bieber!

Zak: No Way! It's not even close...Justin Bieber's hair is way thicker and he can flip it over to the side....mine doesn't do that!

Mom: well you still remind me of Justin and I'm gonna call you "Bieber-licious"

Zak: O-M-G just stop!

Mom: I love you Bieber-licious and you're way cuter than him!

Summer "Bathroom" Reads

It's a commonly known fact, that when I potty trained my kids, I sat on the edge of the tub and read to them while they sat on the potty. It was a great way to get their inpatient minds off the sometimes long wait...and got them to appreciate time with a good book! To this day, my kids are both dedicated bathroom readers.....oh don't get me wrong, they read at other times of the day...but I find evidence in the bathroom of their current reads. I'm always interested to see what books make it to the bathroom...this is good stuff! Awesome boy stuff! I'm proud that they enjoy reading, even if somedays it's only in the bathroom...

Its no secret either that getting boys to read isn't always easy...I've been known to leave comic books and science guides in the bathroom drawer...and you know what? They get read!

What are you reading this Summer...either on the beach or um the bathroom? :)
