I don't often buy adult fiction and if I do it is second hand but children's books, craft books, encouraging books..... downfall
I love that the boys are now at an age (6 and 4) where they can really enjoy chapter books and picture books.
I remember so fondly the joy of being read to and I try very hard to always respond with a yes to a request for reading and to keep reading 'just one more chapter' multiple times because really, if you are going to over indulge and go back on what you said could it be for anything better than just one more chapter (5 or 6 times)??
I'm looking forward to lots of reading in the school holidays. Even in a day we do nothing special a great chunk spent on couches with quilts and books cannot be a bad thing.
This is part of being the mama I want to be and learning from the wonderful mama I had who read us countless stories.
Becoming the Mama I want to be is about taking time to enjoy the journey of parenting, to honour it's value and to hopefully inspire and encourage each other.
