Honestly, I’m not a bookworm but I try to read as often as I can. My brain must be turning to mush because I find it hard to concentrate and sit still. I’m so used to running behind kids.
I am challenging myself to read a book a month. Hey, I have a toddler and a mobile infant *shrugs
Kids are down for a nap and I have about an hour maybe two to just imagine…..
I knew becoming a parent I would definitely have to get my reading skills up to par. I would like for the kids to see books and active readers often in the house.
I am true believer that reading creates imagination. And kids that don’t read follow suit!
Finding time for yourself as a mom is a must. Mani/pedis, shopping, lunch with friends, whatever. I haven’t indulged as much because if Daddy’s working, I just can’t leave my kids with people. Yeah, I’m that Mom.
So, I indulge in books for now. This month I’m reading Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou. This is the story of Maya and the relationship with her Mother growing up.
Very good book and I’m only 6 chapters in.
I’d love any book referrals for this summer from you guys. What’s on your reading list?
