Another one of daddy's duties is to read the girls a story before bed each night. I like doing it, and hopefully I'll keep up with it. Although, it's not exactly the classic two little girls laying in bed while Todd reads the book to them ...
Jaiden usually lasts about 5 minutes, max, before she gets totally bored with the book, and wanders off to
And Jasmine, the little einstein that she's becoming doesn't actually want the book read to her. Oh no, she wants to read the book to me!
She's got a whole shelf full of books, but of course there are a few that are her favorites. The past 2 nights, we've read one called Pinkolicious, and another tonight called Purplicious. They're about a little girl who loves colors. I like the lesson behind them.
Tomorrow night, I think we'll try something a little different. I've got a story called "The Jungle in the Attic" that I just received in my email the other day. And this story actually stars Jasmine herself.
A month or two ago, I signed up on a website called Story Something where I can enter the kids names, and have personalized stories sent right to me. And what's really cool is that it's free.
Oh yea, and if you're the creative type, you can even submit stories of your own which might be used on the site.
I think we're going to have fun with this over the next couple of months at least.
Til next time ...
