I have some pretty amazing kids. They are 23, 20, 18, 5, 2, and 2! Today and Monday I’m going to be sharing some things my oldest two recently blogged about. So proud of them!
My daughter Leslie shares about how she got her love of reading.
“I tiptoe across the floor of my room, trying to force the sound of my footsteps into the plush white carpet. Swinging the door open carefully, so as not to hit the side of the crib, I glance down and see tufts of blonde hair peeking out from under fleece Mickey Mouse blankets. Gentle snores grumble through a snotty nose. Closing the door behind me, I chuckle at the thought that not many college seniors share their room with a toddler… especially when the child is not their own. I step into the hall and overhear Dad’s playful call in the girls’ room: “Alright! Who’s ready for Chapter Time!” Giggling, the two girls jump into their beds and Mom pulls the blankets up around their chubby cheeks as Dad settles back with a picture book. Heading downstairs to work on homework, I smile as the ever-familiar deep hum of his voice follows me down.
