It is getting to the stage of the holidays where I just want to curl up in bed and sleep until noon. The kids are getting bored with the normal distractions and the house is progressively falling into a chaotic black hole. I made a deal with myself to make a big effort today and get all of us out of the house. So… today I did 5 loads of washing, took the kids swimming and enrolled us at the local library.
My oldest especially was really grateful about going to the library, since he is a ferocious reader and he finished his Christmas books weeks ago. He even got himself an audio book so he could listen to a story while falling asleep. He gets his funny reading positions from me, unfortunately for him!
I turned one room into a ‘library’. That means I put all the bookcases together in one room and placed all the extra chairs and beanbags there. With all the books together, I realised I need more book shelves!
Thankfully we all love reading. Even my youngest gets excited about books.
