Day 1136: Read To Your Kids

Today was another really good day.  Per HH's wisdom, I kept all of the doors to the bedrooms and bathrooms locked, so Mr. Mess-Maker was curtailed in his antics for the most part.  That definitely helped.

HH has been reading the Harry Potter books with the kids for the past several months.  It's just the older two who are interested, so sometimes this makes my evening a little stressful with two bored and needy little ones.  And I don't always have the best attitude about that.  But, the truth is, I love that he is doing this.  I love that they are getting read to, that HH cares enough to come up with ideas like this that bring them together, that they are spending quality time with their daddy, and that it means that talk of Hogwarts is constant in our home.

Case in point:  Baby B asked me yesterday, as we were getting into the car, "Are der any dementors in here?"

I did my best to answer respectfully, without bursting into laughter at such a tiny person asking about dementors.

Tonight HH had scouts, so it was my turn.  We read some more of Sideways Stories From Wayside School.  So much fun.  This was one of my very favorite books as a kid and I love love love sharing it with them.  Bam.  Joyful Moment.
