Last week I wrote an “It’s Okay Post“. The idea arose as a way to pay homage to Todd Parr, who writes some of our favorite children’s books. There is something about his colorful pictures and lyrical contradictions that we find positively enthralling, and hilarious, and always, always entertaining enough to listen to the entire story! So, like I said, I wrote the post. Then my virtual nanny bud at nannypology.com wrote her own version. And now I’m hooked on this post idea and excited to announce it as a new regular edition to the blog. I’d love to see what you all come up with, too! Write your own “It’s Okay” post and let me know how it goes. Oh yes, and be sure to check out any of Todd Parr’s books the next time you venture to the library.
