The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

This book is a classic! My Mom read this to me when I was little. Grover spends the whole book fearing the monster at the end of the book. He begs,pleads and uses every trick up his sleeve to prevent the reader from turning the page.

In the end the Monster at the end of the book is loveable,furry old Grover.

My kids love this book and I love reading it to them. If you haven’t read it already I suggest you check it out.
