Do you remember Ziggy comics? I thought this was a comic strip from the distant past, but it looks like the comics are still being published as I found them online while searching for the term “Ziggy comics”.
I was just thinking about a small flip book that my sister gave me when I was a kid. It was of course a Ziggy comic and the theme of the booklet was ” I don’t know why I love you like I do” or something to that effect. I loved that book and I still have it somewhere in one of my drawers.
The reason I’m thinking about the book today is because the other night I got a message from a book publisher about a new children’s book that’s theme is Love. They’ll be sending me the book to look over sometime soon. The information that I got on the book reminded me of how that cute little booklet that my sister gave me as a present made me feel. Now I’m hoping that I love this new book just as much.
I was thinking that since my niece is due to have her first baby in February I might give her this new book as a gift. Well, I’d give it to her as a gift for her baby of course! It was the first thing I thought of when I knew I’d be getting the book to look over. Perhaps her child will love that book and treasure it as much as I did my little Ziggy comic booklet.
I can’t believe that my niece is even old enough to have a baby. It doesn’t seem like it was so long ago that I was just a kid myself. My niece was born when I was only 12 years old so it’s almost like I grew up with her. Geez it doesn’t even seem like it was that long ago that I got first communion invitations for her and her she is all grown up already.
Time certainly does go by quickly doesn’t it!
