I love that after a tiring day, I can report to you the day's happenings while I lazily sit on my cozy couch.
While friends mingled for BBQ type fun this afternoon, the girls set up shop & gave marker tattoos to all our guests. I've got a ladybug sitting on a leaf on my right arm & a cat on my left.
The real fun, these last few nights, have come right before I tuck my kidlet critters into their comfy beds & kiss their faces with goodnight loves: a bed time story!!
I very often read to my children but have gotten out of the habit of reading larger chapter books to them. We were recently given a copy of "James & the Giant Peach"----& oh what fun!! My favorite parts (besides making all the character voices) are when I come to the end of a chapter & the girls begin to beg for more to be read. It's quite cute how they desperately squeal. I do realize part of that is a ploy to get to stay up later, but I also believe they genuinely love listening to the story.
I'm admittedly not a very literature minded gal. And so I didn't realize that the same author of "James & the Giant Peach", Roald Dahl, is the same author who penned "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory". That may just have to be our next adventure in reading. Ooh, I do love sharing a good book with my little ones!
