Awwww!

I was looking on eBay the other day for little kids books, specifically little board books by Sandra Boynton. I had them when I was little and I don't like the illustrations in the new ones as well as the old ones. So I was hoping I could find some of the old ones on there, I didn't, there aren't any on there right now, but I found this new book called "Your Personal Penguin" that comes with an mp3 of the song that goes with it. And the song is SO cute!

Your Personal Penguin
I like you a lot
You’re funny and kind
So let me explain
What I have in mind

I want to be your personal penguin
I want to walk right by your side
I want to be your personal penguin
I want to travel with you far and wide

Wherever you go, I’ll go there too
Here and there and everywhere and always with you
I want to be your personal penguin
from now on

Now, lots of other penguins seem to do fine
In a universe of nothing but ice
But if I could be yours
And you could be mine
Our cozy little world would be twice as nice

I want to be your personal penguin
I want to talk with you night and day
I want to be your personal penguin
I want to listen to whatever you say

Look at these wings
So perfect to hold you
I’d like to say again what I have already told you
Let me be your personal penguin
from now on

Wherever you go, I’ll go there too
Here and there and everywhere and always with you
Please may I be your personal penguin?
Imagine me your personal penguin!
I wanna be your personal penguin
from now on.

– Sandra Boynton

Isn't that so sweet?? :p

The song is sung by Davy Jones from the Monkees and you can see the video of him recording it:

I have to admit it, I really like that song :p. Oh and I found the story of you bumping into Jessica, someone I have known her whole life, very six degrees of separation like. :D

I know, isn't it cute??! :D

Yeah, Will, that's how I felt when I found out Jessica was my friend's cousin! It's crazy! And my friend Lauren's mom (Mrs. Cl___) said she knows your family too.
