Lexi and I are reading The Secret of the Old Clock, Nancy Drew mystery #1. Each night we read for at least twenty minutes and we have a blast! Last night when I told her we were going to read together after I finished Effortless Living Class, she said, "SWEET!" When we cuddled up on the couch to do the reading, I could tell she was feeling all full up of "mommy juice."
We have a tradition I started when Lexi began kindergarten - after the first day of school, we change into pjs, make chocolate chip cookies and talk about the day.
When I think back to my childhood, there are a few very special things my mom did that have always stayed with me ... she made matching dresses for us to wear (so '70s!), she taught me how to crochet and she read to me, and eventually with me, at every opportunity. These moments were magical to me and made me feel special and loved. That's exactly what I have in mind for my daughter.
I'm curious to know what you do to create magic moments with your kids?
