Writer's Block: National Hugging Day
Amélie Amélie
Who is the last person you hugged?

It was Amélie, which reminds me of something I wanted to post about.

Amélie loves having books read to her, and has loved this for a long time now. She seemed to recognise books from a very young age, almost as if it was a genetic memory. One particular book is called "I Like It When...". On each page there are two penguins, a parent and child, and they are performing a task on each page e.g. I like it when you help me tidy up, I like it when we eat new things. With each of the pages I act out the tasks with Amélie, which is the part she loves. One of the tasks is "I like it when you hug me tight", so of course I hug her tight (going back to the meme).

When we get to the end of the book it's always "more please!", and we have to read it about 10-15 times :-)
