Most nights for the past five and a half years have had a story time before bed.
Since the girls started sharing a room in October, it’s a little harder to make story time agreeable (one wants to read to us, one wants to be read to and pick out the book). It makes things quite challenging and not so “getting bedtime ready” friendly.
This night, daddy combatted that and I helped. He picked out the book, and I brought in the peacekeeper, aka E (poor thing). Everybody is a little more agreeable when she’s present (how could you not be, look at that sweet face!)
While reading Where the Wild Things Are, there are just some lines that everybody has to say, “…we’ll eat you up we love you so. And Max said ‘NO’!” Yep, the “no” has to be in unison.
And, that is how daddy reads to all three of his girls and makes story time that much more enjoyable.
(I think Miss E might have her eye on somebody here. Not sure if she wants to be rescued or if she’s letting me know she’s okay!)
