The Stupids Step Out

1 Dec

Have you ever read any of the Stupids books?  I enjoyed this one as a child, so my parents brought it for the kids over Thanksgiving.  They can not get enough of it!

Yesterday I went to each of the twins classrooms to read some books and hand out cupcakes.  They both chose this book (so I read it twice plus a princess book and a transformers book).   The kids were hysterical.  I mean they were laughing so hard they couldn’t even hear me reading.  What’s better than a roomful of kids giggling?

It took the edge off.  I know my post yesterday was annoying, but I do have a sinus infection so let’s chalk it up to illness!  And actually everyone here is sick and coughing on each other.  We’re all tired too.  My little one passed out on the couch with the TV blasting, lights on and her siblings inches away from her face.

Ohhh that mouth!

I’m off to medicate myself with Nyquil.

What books are you reading to your kids these days?

    I’ve never heard of these books before. I don’t think we could allow these books in our house as we don’t allow the word ‘stupid’. Just this morning I was in the kitchen and said ‘stupid’ when my son, who was very sick with a bad cold, mustered up enough energy to say “Dad, you shouldn’t sat ‘stupid'”. And he was in a different room!

      We have a problem with the overuse of the word stupid here too. So, every time I read it I tell them that it’s used in the book to mean ‘silly’ but that generally it’s not a nice word to use. But I was reading the reviews on amazon and lots of people feel the way you do…
