Hello again! 💕 I hope you are enjoying your day. We’re finally getting some sunshine here in Michigan! It’s always a good winter day in Michigan when you get to see the sun. ☀️
So this past weekend, as I was finishing up some Christmas shopping, I stopped by and spent some time at one of my favorite stores… Barnes & Noble! Yeah I know… dork right? I can’t help it I just love the atmosphere of the store! Up until this point in my life I had never spent much time in the children’s area of the store. (I now have another excuse to go to B&N) Lucas needed a bottle so I decided to make myself comfortable by the stage in the kids area.
On my way over to sit down I saw a book that I had originally put on my registry, “Little Blue Truck” by Alice Schertle. I’d never read any of her books before but I liked the cover art. I tell you what when I read this book in the store I was almost in tears! I think this book is hilarious! Maybe it’s just my inner dork but I absolutely loved it so I had to buy it.
I happened to be sitting near the Spanish language children’s books and I remembered that I had also put on my registry a book that was in both English and Spanish. So as I looked through those I found “I love you through and through at Christmas, Too!” by Caroline Jayne Church, which I also ended up buying.
You’re probably wondering “why in the world did you buy an English/Spanish book?” Well I speak both languages. I showed an interest at a young age and since my father was fluent, and also loved Spanish culture, he taught me. I’ve always been able to read, write, and understand more than I could speak; I attribute it to a lack of confidence. But now that I’m not around Spanish speakers I feel I’ve lost fluency, so I figured what better way to get back to speaking it on a regular basis. I can’t wait to see what this does for his learning development.
Our local B&N has reading events for children that I intend on taking Lucas to as he gets older. I’m starting to realize of the joy in educating your children and sharing with them the things that you know. I also love that I get to spend that quality time with my little one.
I hope you enjoyed this short read. Until next time… Let’s Chat: what kinds of things did you enjoy teaching your children as they grew up? Other book suggestions??
