When I was pregnant with Gracie, I remember a sweet lady (Mrs. Nutt) telling me how great it was to have three kids close together; she loved reading books to them all together.
I love reading. It’s one of my preferred entertainment and relaxation activities. There are so many good reasons to read to kids; many good quotes about reading; more books that I’ll ever have time to read. Right? Right.
But the real reason why I read to my kids everyday…..is so that there’s only one voice (my voice) to listen to. It’s the best way to give my ears a rest from the chatter of a full house. When it gets too crazy in the house, I yell for everyone to go pick a book out and meet at the couch.
It’s not always comfortable, depending on who’s tugging at my clothes or jumping over my head to get the best couch position.
But it’s quiet (er).
Yes, Mrs. Nutt. I too love reading to my three kids.
