Finally convinced my son to check out Nana Upstairs, Nana Downstairs by Tomie De Paolo from the library. He told me over dinner yesterday, "Mama, I read that book. It made me want to cry." I made him go get it immediately and I read it to him, my nephew, and my sister.
And of course, the last few pages made me get all teary-eyed. I loved that book when I was a kid and it's still sweet and poignant.
In other news, the fall carnival is OVER.
I am going to bed!
