Reading is beautiful. Before I became a mom, one of my absolute favorite pastimes was reading. Sure, I still read, but now instead of romance and mystery, its more Baby web MD and “how to get paint off the wall” articles.
That still counts as reading!
Luckily, the public library offers story time for almost all ages. A win for me because
1) its free!
2) instills a love of reading at a young age!
3) gives me a chance to spend quality time with my girls.
Selah and I have been going to story time ever since she was a baby. I love these simple moments where we can sit together and listen to a story, sing songs and nursery rhymes.
Maybe you work during the week and aren’t able to take trips to the library.
Maybe a good bedtime story and snuggle is all your little one really needs from you.
Or maybe reading really isn’t your thing.
That’s OK too.
If you’re active, go for a walk together.
If your crafty, do crafts together.
But make quality time a priority.
Every night, I ask Selah one question : what was your favorite part about today?
Some of Selah’s favorite moments have been sitting in her playroom reading her favorite book.
Or having daddy push her on the swings at the park.
If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them, and half as much money.

You may not have all the time in the world with your kids, but how do you spend the time you do have?
