New doggie barrette...new books...how fun!

I've been trying to teach Grace about rewards and how some things are treats and not just something we automatically get no matter what. I know she's still little, but better now than later, right? :) She now understands that if she helps me pick up the play room, we can have extra time to read books (her fave activity). So today, I decided it was time for a treat - a couple of new books, so off we went to Barnes & Noble (one of her favorite places). She got the point about the new books being a special treat - she kept saying "new book tweet for Grace", but not the part about picking one or two - she wanted them all!

Getting ready after naptime...checking out her new favorite barrette - a little scottie dog (thanks, Angel!!) Giving me pouty lips (she's been doing this since she was little bittie :) Mama, I don't want to let it go, but I do want it in my hair!!! (tantrum averted...luckily there were two barrettes in the set) Wow, there are a lot of books here! I think I'll pick between these (notice Dora is now a popular character at our house) But wait a minute, here's a little bunny I like Okay, okay (a new expression she likes to say) I promise no more books after this - wink, wink ;) Caught trying to sneak in a few more books to the stack We finally went home with the Dora pumpkin book and this sweet book! ...and a little treat for me - he, he, he

She looks adorable! I love seeing the photos. :)

Barnes & Noble is our favorite store too. We've been going to story time there lately. Although we had a full blown tantrum there last time.
