A while back, I came across a book, The Duckling Gets a Cookie by Mo Willems. I loved it! The boys loved it! Since, our entire family has become big Mo Willems fans. Mo just came out with a new book, The Pigeon Needs a Bath, and it's fantastic just like all his other books! Anyway, after reading it for the 100th time Jackson asked if Jim would go to his school to read the book to his class- what a awesome idea! Jim was super excited to fulfill Jackson's wish, especially since he had planned to take a day off soon.
Well, the day arrived! Daddy took a day off and didn't tell the boys. After talking to Jackson's teacher, who was excited and eager to have Jim come read a book to the class, Jim surprised Jackson and his class with the new Mo Willems book. They were thoroughly enthralled with The Pigeon Needs a Bath. Jim's such a amazing dad!
Reading to the class.
And Daddy came equipped with Dr. Suess pencils and some M&Ms for everyone!
Jackson helped Daddy pass out the treats.
Everybody say, "CHEESE"!!
Austin and I stayed home because the little girls in Jackson's class just adore Austin (they all want to be his mommy- it's adorable!), but I wanted this to be Jackson's day with his Dad. However, Jim wanted to do something special for Austin while Jackson was at school, so we took Austin to Toys R Us and let him spend his birthday money. Austin was super excited about his surprise from Daddy! He found the coolest toy and Jim was pretty excited about it too. He found a Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood neighborhood WITH the trolley! Jim almost peed himself he was so excited to find this toy (a toy he wanted as a child, but they didn't have when we were kids), and he was even more excited when Austin wanted to buy the same toy. It was a match made in the Land of Make Believe heaven!
I didn't get pictures of Austin picking out his toy, but here he is playing at home-
My boys have the best daddy!
Needless to say, he definitely made both of his boys' day today.
He's their hero!
