Coffee and Bookworms
It's time for Viclit's celebrate the small things!
I'm getting ready to make my morning coffee. Currently, my favorite cup of coffee is brewed from freshly ground beans in my French press. I swirl in some cream from a local dairy and a touch of maple syrup. It is divine. It is even delicious over ice (which is good when you have little kids that distract you until your coffee is cold!) It is worthy of celebrating on its own but I also want to celebrate the number of bookworms that live in my house.
All three of my children are developing a love for books. My two year old enjoys holding picture books upside down and chattering as he turns the pages. My little girl does the same thing but she sings and she actually holds the books right side up. She also loves for me to read to her. Usually the same book, over and over and over. I have most of the "Ladybug girl" books memorized. My oldest son is like me. He has a book with him wherever he goes. He reads while walking around the house. He reads in the car. He reads sitting outside. Sometimes he even reads in his closet so that his baby brother won't steal his book. I love that my children love books and that something I value has such a big place in their lives.
