Every evening when the girls go to sleep we have a special routine – and if I miss a step they are quick to let me know. After they are all tucked into bed with their loveys, I turn on a lullaby – and have to leave my phone in their room until they fall asleep. Which depending on Em’s tiredness can take some time. I don’t mind, I can live without my phone, it’s just that sometimes I forget to put it on airplane mode and a call comes in and stops the music.
Can you recall at what age your love of reading developed? The one thing my mama never had an issue providing me with money for were those book order forms we received monthly at school. Which is why I excitedly partnered with Scholastic for their The Story Starts Here picture books campaign for young readers.
When a child reads on their own, or someone reads to them, their minds are able to open up to exploration and imagination.

Bedtime stories are a nightly routine in our house. After the dinner the girls enjoy a bubble bath together, scrubbing away the fun of the day. I warm up some milk for them and we get into our pajamas and pick out a book.
As a mama to three children, with two of them being specifically under the age of three, I look forward to bedtime on most nights. Their bedtime that is. There’s a sigh of relief that tends to come over me at 8pm, a much deserved relief. The girls keep me busy all day long as most kids will do, sucking the life out of their parents so that they can keep moving and running and full of energy. I say this with love of course.
