Family Moment Monday

Motherhood for Dummies hosts Family Moment Mondays, check her out to get more ideas on how to spend time together as a family!

As an avid bibliophile, reading has always held as special place in my life. Now with a little one, I want to make sure that she inherits this same love of reading. Now that Philip, who is a teacher, is getting ready to go back to work, he looks at reading as a special way of connecting with Michaela when he gets home from work. Michaela and I find a time during the day to pick out a special book, and when Philip comes home from work, Michaela and her daddy read the book together (while I get dinner ready!). Although technically we are not all spending time together at the same time, it is nice that Michaela is able to share a part of this special time with both her parents. As she gets older (and the books get longer) I look forward to sharing this reading time together each night.

That is such a smart idea! I keep meaning to read to our daughter more, but I just haven't done it. I totally am going to have my hubby do this to while I am getting din ready, thanks!
