I walked upstairs camera in hand. My hope? To find enough light for product photos. Though I'm told it's spring the snow and hail speak otherwise. Natural light is in short supply.
I popped my head into the girls' room expecting to find Little at the computer. She adores Club Penguin. But she wasn't at the desk. She was on her bed - reading. A girl after my own heart!
Oh I have been waiting for this day. I, myself, am an avid reader. Always have been. But my children? Not so much.
We do read. Stories before bed; girls all snuggled up and winding down together. Every once in a while the boy joins us. But, sadly, he seems to have outgrown this tradition.
Despite my example and gentle nudging it's rare to find the kids reading of their own accord. Oh how I hope this trend continues, and grows like wildfire to boot.
