'Rainbow Buckets', explained.

My family and I took a trip to Barnes and Noble in search of a 'New Big Sister' type book, and ran across a book titled, 'Have You Filled a Bucket Today?', by Carol McCloud. Scott immediately laughed and called it a 'hippie book', which only increased Nevaeh's desire to buy it. The book talks about how everybody has an invisible bucket that they carry around, and it is our job to fill that bucket up with happiness. When we all fill each other's buckets, the world is a happy place. Hippie-esque? Maybe a bit. Possibly a tad on the Buddhist side as well. Nonetheless, Nevaeh fell in love with the story as well as the pictures of rainbows and shapes flowing in and out of buckets on each page. She has since repeatedly asked me to read 'Rainbow Buckets' to her.

This blog is about Rainbow Buckets - the things she and I do to make each other, and the people around us, smile. Life's happy little moments often pass by without notice. Instead, she and I want to share them with the world. Expect artwork, funny stories, and our journey into becoming a big sister for the first time. ♥
