Did you know that three kids can now build with Legos.....electronically, and all on the same game at the same time?

You know, it has been overdue for about 20 years.

For whatever reason, I'll take it.

She does love her Mama....loves to kiss and nibble and be sure I know it, too.

I love my little furry babies, too. There is something special about the unconditional love they offer. We had a 2 dog night for the past 3 nights. It has been cold and Mikki and Nikko love to snuggle close to Mommy! We had a lovely white Christmas and the snow lasted all last night and part of today...a light, soft powder snow...about 4 inches. Our first white Christmas in several years! Love it! Blessings. Evelyn.

Late?

OK, maybe a bit late, but Grace, my cat wishes all a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in her own inimitable way......

Ah, the adult conspiracy to get kids to read. Love that idea!

Ours are all early readers, ditto the grandkids. It's a good thing to encourage.

Yep.

Children who are read to become avid readers, in my experience, and it is the single best thing one can do for speech and language development.

They love to read in bed at this age, and have been doing it with flashlights, but the book lights are so much simpler....they love them, and I knew they would. Grandmas know kids.

Four scrubbed and jammied babes, now snuggled together on the carpet in front of the woodstove, watching a movie.

I like them to play sans electronics, which they do very well, but a well timed movie .....settles them down before bed, and brings a bit of quiet to the little house.

I like.

Noise can return in the am.

Yup. All 4 of ours are avid readers. The only issue we had growing up was building enough bookcases. I can handle that one😄

Both our kids were read to for years by either myself or my wife. Our daughter read on her own, our son, not until he got into computers. Then he started reading constantly, but on the computer or a kindle and now he is an IT person.

I know about reading to the kids. I'm a school bus driver and on Wednesday I read a book to my kids on the bus ( when I get to the school I have 10 extra min.) and they love it. It's called Reading Wednesday.

Good for you!

They will remember that all of their lives, and you may make the difference for any disadvantaged kids.
