Something other than Good Night Moon, I love you Stinky Face, and our household favorite Guess How Much I Love You!
I love to read! Before Kids, one of my favorite places to hang out was at Barnes and Nobel. Mike and I have even spent many a date nights browsing through our favorite book store.
I used to stock up on the latest Jennifer Weiner books and head to the beach! Ahhh…. I remember those days sitting on the beach, in a CHAIR! sipping my iced coffee and reading, uninterrupted reading. Those beach days are gone… now my time at the beach is spent chasing around the babes…. splashing, building sand castles, applying sun block. Not much time for reading.
My “free” time is limited than it once was and is often spent editing pictures of said beach trip, knitting, or sleeping!
So, that hasn’t left a lot of reading time available. I still like to buy the books… I just find it harder to find time to read them…. that is until now.
One of my pet peeves about Mike is that like a lot of men when he heads in to the bathroom he is there for 15-20 minutes. So annoying when you live in a ONE bathroom house. Well I finally figured out that my husband didn’t suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome….nope!! He was taking his break, he was escaping and hiding in the bathroom to read! (So that’s the secret to his ability to finish his books)
His secret is out and I have started to do the same thing!! I can read a chapter for each potty break!! Love it! I have finished two books and have started in on the third…since this revelation.
Thanks Babe! For the great idea, and helping me find time to pursue my love of reading!
