I just finished a book called The Book of Joe by Jonathan Tropper. I really enjoyed it. This guy leaves his little town and writes a “fiction” book about his high school experience, thinking he will never return to his little town. Lo and behold, because of a family emergency, he has to. It was a great book, and one I highly recommend. I enjoyed the way it was written. I felt connected to the main character. And it’s the first book in a long time that made me laugh out loud and cry. It’s a good one.
I found somewhere that it is supposed to be a movie, but the last thing I could find was from 2010 that said Brad and Jen’s company was looking to pick it up (yes, I still refer to them as Brad and Jen and love them!). Is there a movie called Bush Falls? That’s an alternative title to this book.
I started looking up other books by this author and was thrilled to find one that is supposed to be a movie by this Fall! “This is Where I Leave You” is on its way to my house. I will let ya know!
I do feel like she has so much stuff right now. I end up taking multiple bags with us everywhere. I've been on the hunt for a diaper bag that will hold her lunchbox, sippy, and snacks, favorite blanket (okay, my favorite blanket that I'm pushing on her to be her favorite too), her favorite stuffed animal duck (please see previous parenthetical note), her noise machine (that she doesn't care about but I find comforting to have with us just in case), and of course her normal diaper bag essentials...sanitizing wipes, diapers, creams, wipes, and on and on.
I have always loved Kipling. I think their stuff is adorable. I am looking at these two items right now and trying to decide if they might be big enough to only have to carry the one bag with us everywhere, but not huge pieces of luggage. And maybe she will like them a little later in life for her first sleepovers? That is, if I ever let her go anywhere overnight...
