Reading With My Boys

Using Books to Raise My Boys

Reading my boys awake…

on September 25, 2013


Occasionally all of the planets align and you receive maximum perfection. In a house with six boys, one dog, twelve chickens and a cow  that is rare. I can say that for two weeks, every school morning, I experience that perfection. At about 6:15 every morning I head downstairs to a quiet room where all I hear are the sweet sounds of children sleeping. I turn on a muted lamp and gently touch my boys heads to wake them. Then I snuggle on the couch and read them awake with a chapter of Trumpet of the Swan (which is the perfect “read your boys awake” book). Then we read a poem from the Common Core list. Ahhh…for me it is not surprising that the answer to family unity in the morning can be found in a book.
