Don't mind the gap - Days 10, 11 & 12

Sorry I have been MIA lately. There is a really good reason why. I made a really cute book with my new cricut about Ben and sent it to all the grandparents and now I wanted to share it with you! It is a play off of the children's book " Alexander and the horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day.""Benny's Fantastic, adventurous, very fun, good day!"

"Benny woke up one Thursday morning. A day like any other, but he could tell something was different. He had grapes that smelled like purple and cereal that crackled and popped. His juice was extra juicy and the spoon he used was a big boy spoon.

He knew this would be a FANTASTIC day. "

Benny loved his Elmo air plane. He would ride it all day long. He would put lots of balls inside the secret box in the seat, so the naughty creatures couldn't take them away. He loved to pretend that he would fly all over the globe. This day Benny imagined flying all the way to Grandma's house.

That would be an ADVENTUROUS day!

Benny has two dogs. Their names are Hazel and Caesar. They are the fiercest creatures in all the land. Benny spends days on end taming the wild beasts, so they won't eat clover the owl. They snarl and snort, but Benny just hugs and loves them. Someday he would teach them tricks to get treats.

Today was turning into a VERY FUN day!

Benny can't talk a lot yet, so he likes to learn sign language. He watched baby signing time. He giggles and dances when the diaper dance song plays. He learns a new sign everyday so he can talk to mommy and daddy. His favourite sign is food and fish!

It was a really GOOD day!

Benny knew that this day was special. He felt it all day long. He had a little twinkle in his tummy that fluttered. A little birdie told him something and he is so excited to share it with you...


is going to be a


Today is a Fantastic, Adventurous, Very fun, Good Day!
