"This is my house, and I am the Mommy..."
When I was little this was my favorite book in the whole world. Even today, it remains my all time favorite children's book.
This Little Mommy is Mother to 3 "children" (Annabell, Betsy and Bonnie). Throughout the book, she takes good care of her little babies. Oh how she loves being a Mommy! How she cares for them - and the home her little ones live in. I always loved her washing her clothes in her washing machine and hanging them on the line to dry. (Perhaps this is why I love to hang out my clothes to dry? hmmm)
She finds herself busy with many domestic chores throughout the day; but still finds the time to care for a sick child, make a pie for Daddy, and host a tea party with her neighbor.
The ending is precious - for even as a little Mommy - she realizes that she does have a lot to do to care for those that she loves - but it is meaningful work and work that is quite rewarding.
"We Mommies have such a lot to do. Goodnight dollies - I'm sleepy too."
How many times I mothered those little dolls when I was young - as if they were my very own. How neat to look at life now and realize - I am living out my dream - I am just no longer as little as I used to be! :0I actually do not own this book at this time. I want is so bad - because my book got too torn up through the years. Perhaps someday I will find me another copy. Rest assured though - that it is dear to my heart; for even to this day I can quote the book from cover to cover. My children have heard it many times!
Thanks for stopping by. I am so glad you did!
