Confession

I really do not like reading to my kids. I love to read to myself, in fact, it is my favorite thing to do. It surprises me that I don't like to read to them. It was something that I dreamed about before becoming a mom. The reality was different.
They have a lot of books. A lot of favorite books that they love for me to read to them. And I do it. I don't like to.
I try to have them make up their own stories to the pictures. I try to have Ivy read herself or read to her brother. Have them both read to me. Sometimes it works. Most of the time not.
I even try to ply them with cartoons on tv. No go.
Don't tell the experts on me.

LOL...I read daily and just like you always have at least one book on hand in my purse or car...but I don't like reading with Regen...I like it better now that she can read to me, but Iam right with you!!

I sure prefer chapter to picture books as read-alouds. Some of the picture books are so boring that I can read the entire thing aloud and at the end have no idea whatsoever about what happened!
