Reading in the summertime can sometimes take a back seat to other activities. I encourage you to intentionally set aside time to read with your kids over the summer.
If your kids are bored, roaming around the house aimlessly, or driving you crazy, a schedule might be a good idea.
Raising children is tough work. As I say all the time on this blog, the intersection of motherhood and life is messy and we need all the help we can get.
If you had told me a year ago that I would spend months suffering from debilitating back pain to find out that the root cause was a food allergy, I would have laughed in your face.
If you’re still trying to plan your family, remember that plans change, and trust that it will all work out okay, just as it was meant to.
