What do you read to your children? What are their favorite stories, characters, themes? Have you noticed a trend in what sparks their interest?
What time of day do you read (most often)? What messages, lessons, etc. do you want your child to take from your time spent together (while reading).
If you answer these questions in detail for me I will compensate you with a gift for your little one.
You may respond here or to email@example.com
Thanks so much!

Most of the time I hate my body.
I get angry because the clothes I want to wear don't always fit. I feel guilty for eating sweets. I scowl at myself in dressing room mirrors.
In moments like this I remember to cut myself some slack. I may not always love my body, but it looks this way for a reason.
Because the little boy who "woves mommy tummy" lived inside that tummy once.
I have never cared for bikinis and I'm too short for crop tops anyhow.

Maybe it's my anxious (sometimes obsessive) behavior or maybe I'm sort of kind of possibly a little teeny tiny bit of a diva; I usually get very upset when things don't go my way. Even when the thing that didn't go how I had planned is very trivial. I plan right down to the second: when I will shower, brush my teeth, put on a bra, start my car, how many calories in my meals, what toy goes where, oh? I'm five minutes late? I just won't go at all...
I forget to breathe. I forget to slow down.
I strive for consistency (and dare I say perfection) and almost always miss my mark.
I wanted to go to Starbucks. Leo wanted to play "bubble pop" instead of getting dressed. The ducky bubbles were "bwoken", but he found some more in a box.
He didn't mind that his original plan had gone awry.
I don't really care much about Starbucks anyway.
I would blow bubbles in this hallway forever.

I had a delicious French toast breakfast. Marcus and Leo surprised me with new art supplies.
We braved the rain to go on a hike and the sky ended up clearing and the sun shined down.
We didn't reach our destination, but we did meet snails, butterflies, and a scary caterpillar.
We collected acorns, climbed "widdle mountains and "biiiiig rocks".
Leo told me he loved me (and I didn't even say it first).
I had the best grilled food followed by cake (with a brownie center!) and spent time with my family.
My mantle now has ivy.
It was a good day.
