A New Tradition

After Ashton was born, I finally decided to let Carter stop taking naps (for the most part). Instead of sleeping, he has quiet time with me. I read a chapter book out loud while he draws, plays quietly, or just snuggles in to me. So far we have read Mrs. Piggle Wiggle, Peter Pan, The Lion, Witch, & the Wardrobe, Charlotte's Web, and Babe the Gallant Pig. Our new tradition has temporarily gone on hiatus while we are in Idaho but I look forward to starting it up again when we get home.

Love it! I started reading to my girls after they are tucked in bed for a while--I need to get back into it. They looked forward to it. I read one of the Little House on the Prairie books.

What a great idea. Beckett loves books and I think I might do this while he has his quiet time. Thanks for the fantastic mommy ideas you plop into my noggin. :)
