I have tried more recently to make more time for my two little ones still at home for me. So, one of the things we have done more is to visit our local library most weeks during storytime. BUT...inevitably, sometimes we just can't make it. So. one morning, I thought "Why not do it at home?!" (Why in the world I did not think of this sooner is beyond this mom brain! haha)
So, we started out with one of our favorite books. This book never gets old to my kids. And their reactions while we read it together always bring a smile to my face. I LOVE seeing them engaged as we read and smiling and laughing, Best.feeling.ever!
After we read it together, my girls made paper bag puppet monsters. I found it hilarious with all they did to them.
Then later, I found my daughter "reading" the book again (as she sat in her favorite reading spot, one of our dogs' beds.) Bonus smile!
