My Kids are Going to be SMRT!

Look, I wasn't kidding around about the Rainbow Magic books people.  Last night I was reading the riveting Rain Fairy book to Edie and lookey here, page 60, second line:

And check out page 64:

Now the switch from shimmering to sparkling is to be commended, however, I was not fooled, I see what they did there.  I have to think of the audience though - I can practically see the whirlwind of fairy dust swirling around Edie's head as she falls asleep at night, dreaming about how the hells happy bells will the  dust will be distributed in the next chapter????????

I have an issue with the other child now.  So independent is Grace getting that I don't regularly read to her at night.  When I stopped in for a little good night cuddle last night, I found her with her iPod, notebook and pen in hand jotting down One Direction lyrics. This verse sung by the admirably articulate
*puffy heart* Zayne grabbed my attention for it's particularly articulate persuasiveness :


Oh girl, can we try one more, one more time?
One more, one more, can we try?
One more, one more time I’ll make it better
One more, one more, can we try?
One more, one more,
Can we try one more time to make it all better?

So note to Edie, stick to Rainbow Magic, at least they use adjectives.
