M loves to read. She “studies” every night with Daddy after her bath, and it is their bonding ritual that we are thankful for. At a little over two-and-a-half years old, she knows almost all of the colors in her color books, can count to 25 (with some missing numbers, some of them are hard [...]

Exploring Our Public Library

This past spring I discovered our public library. I knew where it was, but I never went there to visit or see what it was all about in our small town. I really wish I’d gone sooner. However, now is the perfect time since M will be three and we have already outgrown our bookshelf. [...]

Brody’s Favorite Books – Age 3

Our little guy has always been a reader. When he was a baby and I was a SAHM, I would read books to him before every nap and before bed to try to establish a bedtime routine. We’d read in his room, with him on the Boppy Pillow looking at me (or more likely the [...]
