In. A. Row.
My tongue was numb by the 7th book, but so worth the smiles from her!
Out of the 15 that we received, she already has her favorites, and so do I. We have decided that
I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt
is our favorite book in the bunch.
This book is about a devoted mother's love for her child. As she tucks her child into bed, the imagination of this kid leads to all sorts of crazy questions like, "What if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?" The mother, without flinching, reassures her child that she will always love her! No matter what!
If Lucy and I could write a page of our own, a CF version, to insert into Lisa McCourts wonderful book about a mother's unconditional love for her child, it would go like this:
But, Mama, but, Mama, what if I was a girl who had Cystic Fibrosis with daily breathing treatments, medications, nasty poop, and stinky farts?
"Then I would diligently sterilize your nebulizer cups and mask, and faithfully put Caillou on the television so that breathing treatments are a breeze and your lungs remain healthy and pink. And I would show you how to take all your medications to make sure that your poop wasn't as nasty and greasy, or your farts as stinky.
And I would whisper in your ear every chance I could get,
'I love you, my sweet, brave CFer.'"
It's no wonder this is one of our favorite books.
My love is unconditional, and I would do anything to reassure her that I will love her through it all!
