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.
