Today, I’m going to talk about my friend, Caleb. Mom found him at Goodwill ages ago. We’re not sure what kind of teddy bear he is. His tag was on his arm, and Mom cut it off a long time ago.

Caleb is my teddy bear. He also is Mom’s travel bear. He is with her almost all the time. He can fit inside her purse! She has taken him on some road trips to Door County, Chicago, and even Minneapolis. He also gets to go inside when she’s shopping, or eating at a restaurant. Milton, Foster and I have to stay in the car when she’s at work, but Caleb has accompanied Mom almost every day.
Caleb fits the mini Build-a-Bear clothes, so he often has a snazzy shirt on. It’s a dinosaur shirt now. He loves dinosaurs, adventures, and the color red. He doesn’t like being outside of Mom’s purse in public—he’s worried that he’ll get lost. He is my best friend.

He also has Carabella, a bear that Mom brought home to be his friend. They don’t always get along! He says that it is nice to have someone to talk to sometimes when they’re in Mom’s purse or bag together, but sometimes it just gets crowded! They’re both kind of cranky sometimes!
I’m feeling pretty good about this blogging stretch! I hope we can keep it up! We’re working ahead, so I think that will help a lot!

This is the second of hopefully many blog posts for Mom and I. Today, we’re going to talk about books! Mom could probably have a book blog of her very own! We could probably talk on and on about them here too!
One of my favorite authors, Blue Balliett, has a new book in her Chasing Vermeer series. It is called Pieces and Players. It is about the three children from the previous books, plus two new children, trying to find out what happened to stolen pieces of work across the globe.

Mom likes this series because the first book reminded her of a Da Vinci Code kind of book for kids, and the second one is about Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings. (He was born in Wisconsin, so Mom has a soft spot for works by him—but he wasn’t a very nice person, so we keep our reading about him to references in kids’ books!)
Do you have a new book that you’d like to recommend?

Long time no see again. I’m sorry—Mom works in retail, and it’s Christmas—and she doesn’t feel like doing much at all when she’s not at work. We’ve come up with an idea that will help Mom and I have ideas to keep on blogging. We’ve come up with an alphabetical list—well, the beginnings of it, to keep us with blog topics! Right now, Mom and I think we will post once a week.

This week it is A for Adelaide. Adelaide is Mom’s first American Girl doll. She found her at a Saver’s thrift store.

She loves the color red, horses, and reading. (We’re all fond of reading around here, if you haven’t figured that out!) She has silver eye—the brown in one of her eyes has disappeared, but she can see just fine!

Next week will be B for books. I’ve got my choice all lined up!
