Drop. Everything. And. Read.
I don’t know where the number of 15 minutes per day actually came from but I have heard that thrown around the parenting world since before I was even a parent.
But the word is you should be reading to your child 15 minutes a day or more.
I used to think that our bed time book would suffice for this time, but now that it is summer we are going to bump things up a bit.
Bedtime does not count.
We are going to set aside 20 minutes a day just to stop everything, go to the reading chair, and read.
Everyone is invited, Lincoln, Bo, and of course, me (I’m the only one that can actually read).
It is going to be super.
I think it will be good for the fact that we are reading, and apparently that is good for kids. But also the fact that we are just taking 20 minutes out of the day to chill.
I like that.
