Find a Good Read

Find a good read and boost the richness in your life — and in your kids’ lives, too.

Reading a good book can bring such a boost to your everyday — and to that of our kids. I am having a great time watching my littlest ones explore books together. They are both on the cusp of entering the world of books on their own. And my bigger ones? What joy to see that even though they love today’s technology, they still love a good read.

As moms, we should be reading, too. Something other than the back of a cereal box or the quick blog post. There’s something so “real” about curling up with a good book in a cozy chair — even if you’re journeying to another world. Here are some tips and tricks to making reading an everyday thing at your house.

Reading for Moms

  1. I’ve struggled with finding the time for leisure reading. My husband works at a job, many hours and very physically, so that I can stay at home with the kids. I have then felt a lot of guilt spending time doing something that isn’t productive to the household also during those times, such as reading, which I really enjoy doing except for the guilt factor. Which is why I find myself spending leisure time surfing the Internet – no evidence :) Any advice for a person like me?

      Well, I think that you’re working a full-time job, too. Probably one of the most important jobs in the world. And most husbands (hopefully yours, too) wouldn’t begrudge you a leisure activity when you finally get a moment to yourself. Does surfing feel as rewarding as a full-fledged book?

    I used to spend most of my free time reading. Now with kids my brain is so fried at the end of the day I veg out in front of the TV. I still do a book club once a month but need to read more. It does a body good!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
