Best Message Ever

(Sweater/ Shoes- Anthropologie, Shirt- Gap, Jeans- AG)

Since this outfit is pretty run of the mill- not that I didn't love wearing it, it just isn't making any big waves- I thought instead that I would share the loveliest message that I have ever received. It's timely considering that the fourth Binky book, Binky Takes Charge, just came out this past weekend. It was posted on the Binky Facebook page last night: 

"Dear Binky, He came into my classroom today. You know, the boy who d̶i̶s̶l̶i̶k̶e̶s̶ h̶a̶t̶e̶s̶ detests reading. He has quit more than two books since the start of school--four days ago. He stood near my desk and told me straight up, "I hate reading." I'm so glad you live in my classroom, Binky. I walked right over to you, picked you up gently, and introduced you to this boy. This boy who took you out of my classroom over The Lunch Lady and Sidekicks. This boy who took you back to study hall and hid himself behind the door so he could read more than the first couple pages I read to him. This boy who left school with a smile saying, "I love that book!" This is what you do, Binky. You live in my classroom and make best friends with readers. Thank you."

And that, people, is why I do what I do.

  1. For the record, my kids actually like reading, and they love Binky too.

    Thank you for doing what you do.
