"I asked my mom to carry my backpack, but she said, 'I only have two arms!' Only two arms? Maybe she needs some more. Hmmm...I wonder..." From If Mom had Three Arms by Karen Kaufman
I don't think I need all 20 arms the book proposes, but one or two more might be nice. Can you imagine washing up the dirty dishes as you are cooking? Folding the laundry while reading a story? Checking email as you stack blocks? The possibilities are endless!
But alas, I have only two. So I'll do the important things with my two and the rest can wait.
(This was not one of the books from yesterday's story time. Just one we had in our collection.)
