Back to the Basics
The Christmas Season is a welcomed change to our otherwise monotonous schedule. But now that the house is freshly vacuumed from top to bottom, the leftover holiday turkey and treats unceremoniously tossed in the trash, and our out-of-town guests back on airplanes it feels like a good time to start a fresh (it is New Year's after all).
I set up a book corner for E today; complete with her comfy chair (thanks Patty), a reading light, basket of books that I intend to rotate frequently, her new oh-so soft 'Linus' blanket (thanks Molly), her new Leap Pad, and a plant (thanks Tania). She already loves reading with us, and now that her letter recognition is really taking off, I'm hoping that this quiet place will afford her the time and space for her already blooming love of books.
