Last night after the kids had completed their homework and were sort of in that "grey" area where it was not quite time for bed I found myself with a little short bit of time so I sat on my bed and read a few pages of a book.

Little March comes in to the room and says..

"Dad you do this every night!"
What do I do, I ask
"You come up here..and you read"

I do? I am a far cry from a "reader". I try, here and there to read stuff (that is not magazines or cd liner notes) but I am glad she notices and "thinks" I read all the time. That is a good thing, and I will try to read more each night!

Reading is Fundemental
I try to recreational read (not work) every day, usually at night. My kids even leave me alone if I am reading a book. Although Katie (3.5) may ask if I will read her book next...

Aren't kids great for making us feel like heros even when we don't exactly feel like it ourselves?

One of my kids once said "mom you're a lot calmer than some other moms I know"

I never really thought so but okay . . . I'll go with that.

My kids are ALWAYS making comments about how I read so much. Unfortunately, they usually seem to catch me reading comic books.
