Some nights I absolutely love reading my kids a book before bed. Other nights I think I’ll scream if Miss Nerd whips out her tattered copy of Frozen for the 452nd time.

Little Nerd is 7 now, Miss Nerd is 4 – that’s a lot of books to be got through every night! Sometimes, especially when solo parenting, the bedtime routine drives me absolutely bonkers. There are times I am exhausted, irritable, the kids are bickering, they’ve been prolonging dinner time, bathtime, brushing their teeth and packing away their toys and basically doing every single little thing they can to delay the inevitable bedtime. All I want is to get that bedtime story read so I can get them into bed. Sometimes, the bedtime book is the only calm, pleasant spot in a night of nuttiness.

After bedtime reading for almost seven years now, Mr Nerd and I have certainly come to appreciate a good children’s book – the mark of which I believe is a book that BOTH children and adults can re-read over and over, without adults wanting to poke their own eyes out with the corner of a hardcover.

Weekend Reading 10.23.22 | Centsational Style

What a pretty 7 days it is been! In my town, golden leaves address the trees and the skies are blue. Weather clever, Oct is this sort of a excellent thirty day period, I experienced to choose a wander just about every working day just to soak it all in. I used a number of added several hours in the ceramics studio, sculpting and glazing. I’ll share more pieces on Instagram as they come out of the kiln and I model them in creative means. I’m loving this new interest of mine.

I applied to come to feel worry this time of yr in particular in the times right before Halloween, acquiring my youngsters costumes ready and using them to all the functions. Now that they handle costumes by themselves and no lengthier go trick-or-managing, the stress is off. I miss the sweetness of it but not the exhaustion that arrived with all these Halloween functions. 🙂

My brain is currently in Thanksgiving mode, planning our Florida residence to rest added company and placing the desk for a big team. And then of study course Christmas is just around the corner. Each individual calendar year I keep issues easier and every 12 months I feel to take pleasure in the getaway year extra as a final result.

Preferred back links from the week:
