Whew, I’m having so much mommy-ing Kamea that I have not had the chance to blog as much. Now that the weather has gone below 100 degrees, it makes it so much easier to get out and about. Every day we’ve been going to new places, including the PARK! Wow… Kamea sure loves to swing. We’ve been going every night and she swings for an hour (pictured below, in action). It’s been a blast. We’ve also been going to different resorts around town (Scottsdale is known for it’s gorgeous resorts) where we just hang out, have lunch or tea, and play.
A while back, I opened up my Kristen’s Raw blog to questions about me, my lifestyle, raw food, etc. You can check out all the great questions and answers here. Then, I received a couple of questions about my daily life in general, which I answered over here on my Green Mommy Blog. Another reader sent me an email with a variety of fun and interesting questions that I thought I’d answer today. Here we go…
Kamea loves books and they’re a huge part of our day. I’ve read enough parenting books to know the importance of reading with my baby. And, boy oh boy, she LOVES it. Ever since she learned to sign “more” she asks me to read and reread and reread books all day long. She has her favorites, though, that’s for sure. Doggies, anyone? To make it even more exciting though, I sometimes, ehem, sing them to her. Other times I get so animated that I literally exhaust myself… by the way, is it just me or do some of the Dr. Seuss books take a lot out of ya? After reading The Cat in the Hat, I need nap!
One of her favorite books is Rockin’ Babies by Dr. Jenn Berman (fellow vegan and author of SuperBaby). Here I am, sharing with the world (I did this on my Facebook author page, but that’s only available to fans so the audience was limited), my singing to Kamea.
By the way… the part about “spitting on authority figures” is not as bad as it might sound. It’s a cute picture of a dad being spit “up” on with baby food. See?
