Happy Friday! Every Friday, Lisa-Jo hosts the Five Minute Friday party. We get one word to write about for five minutes, no editing. Today’s word is STORY.
I love to read and I have a fondness for children’s stories. Having someone to read to is pretty amazing, too. I’m still waiting for my own little one to read bedtime stories to, and hopefully that will happen soon (not too soon-still want a little time alone with my new husband). Until then, I have four amazing nieces and nephews I get to borrow once in a while. It’s great watching them grow from newborn to toddlers and then to young thinkers. And this is when the bedtime stories come in. Sitting in bed with your kid all snuggled close and intently watching as you turn each page is the best thing in the world. They always want one more story! Thank goodness for short picture books. Little hands pointing at the colorful images on the page and eyes glancing at you with excitement. I love being an auntie and I know when the time comes, I will love (beyond words) being a mom. And for now, I will cherish the moments and memories I get to borrow and the bedtime stories I get to read before heading to my own home for the night.
