Chad and I have started something.
We read, out loud, to each other.
Currently we are reading "Boy" by Roald Dahl after finishing his "Esio Trot". We both loved Roald Dahl growing up recently bought a huge collection of most of his works (found at costco!). We are going to read all of them to each other, and then we will find some other old time favorites to read to each other.
Do you remember when your mom or dad would read to you? I do.
I remember my mom reading to me. Amelia Bedelia, Ramona The Pest, and classics like Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer and Gullivers Travels and Little Women to name a few before I was even 8 years old.
I LOVED it.
I loved listening and imagining Huck and Jim traveling on the Mississippi, and Gulliver getting tied up by tiny people and I remember watching my mom get all choked up in Little Women.
We plan on never having cable, but we do plan on lots of books.
It was a pretty sight this evening: Chad in the arm chair with Lils laying on his chest rambling, I was nursing Eden and reading to us all.
I am excited for this to happen often.
