Yeah, sure. Ok the 6 yr old is pushing her 2 yr old brother out of the way. The 4 yr old princess has picked boogers and wiped the in the hair of the 6 yr old. And the 2 yr old just pooped and has a nice warm smile on his face. Yeah this is more like it.
So after cleaning up the pullup (yeah, nice word for diaper), washing the hands of all and combing out 2 miles of tangled booger hair we are back in the big bed nest. And we are reading My Purple Toes. This is a nice cardboard book (remember the 2 yr old is here) with bright colors and clean drawings. Also there is a hiding frog on every page to look for too! The premise of painting dad's toes purple for fun has the kiddos giggling. And then everywhere his purple toes can go leads the imagination on. This is a big hit with all the kiddos.
How did My Purple Toes get started? Well Blair Hahn had an invitation from his teenage daughter to join her for a pedicure. To her surprise, he accepted her invitation and it wasn't long before dad was getting his toes painted a vibrant shade of purple. Blair was inspired by this experience and he wanted to share, which inspired his first book, "My Purple Toes." One of the things I have to share with you because I think it is important to give back is that My Purple Toes shares. "My Purple Toes" donates a significant portion of its proceeds to benefit children in the United States and around the world through nonprofit, Soles4Souls, which collects and distributes shoes at no cost to people in need.
Well since I have been celebrating with the kiddos here all week. We should continue sharing (that is this weeks lesson) with you. So how about your own copy of Purple Toes? Yeah we got it sitting right here. And I will be thrilled to mail one out to one lucky giveaway winner. We ask for the mandatory entry that you visit My Purple Toes and sign their guest book.
