More Than One Way…

Sometimes one thing succeeds as a result of another thing’s failure. Getting all the children down to rest at one time during the day is one non-negotiable in our home, but I allow the older ones who can read to look at books during these hours. They must figure out early on that if they read the whole time, they will not have to sleep. So our youngest reader has his nest piled high with books, sometimes reading for two hours straight! This indicates that maybe I can’t take the credit directly for their love of books- it really comes from a dislike of naps. Oh well, I’m happy to admit a near defeat on this issue, if it means our kids become good readers. I’ll just keep extending naptime bit by bit…

    That is so cute and wonderful. 🙂 You know they love books because you do too. 😉 And children’s books are so much fun. Be careful…do any of them have flashlights?!
