When they've finished reading, Olivia's mother gives her a kiss and says, 
"You know, you really wear me out. But I love you anyway."
And Olivia gives her a kiss back and says, 
"I love you anyway too."

Olivia by Ian Falconer

(My current favorite children's book, actually we ALL love it. Jared and I laugh our way through the clever words and illustrations. Kilmeny loves it because, well, perhaps she identifies with Olivia? Great book, definitely recommended!)


  1. Thanks for the recommendation!! I love children's books so much and had to let go of 99% of mine when I moved. Slowly but surely I will collect them again. :-)

  2. I love all the same things you do! Raindrops on roses and all! Beautiful post, poem and photographs! You have definitely captured the essence of childhoos in 4 shots... joy, curiosity, playfulness and frustration - what a treasure!
