Today my daughter Journee and I had an indoor Mother-Daughter Day. Books and Brunch were in the cards. The menu was inspired by our recent stay at the Embassy Suites. We indulged in over-easy omelettes, deep fried potato wedges, toasted bagels and sweet juicy watermelon. We read, ate, and read some more, until we were half way through Amerincan Girls Gabriela. We both love the arts, so the story took over us from the beginning. Journee’s love for dance and my love for poetry was fused with Gabriela McBride’s love and passion for them both. As she tries to save Liberty Arts Center she is faced with personal and community challenges. Although we’ve read several books/stories this summer, this read inspired our first Little Glam Readers post of the summer.
I think its awesome because I am a dancer and my my mom is a poet so we both can relate to Gabriela. My favorite parts so far are Gabriela tapping in her mom’s class, meeting her cat Maya and her mom finding out the good news. As far as brunch the omelette was “scrumdeliocious”! My dad would be proud.
