My favourite time of the day is when I get to sit down and read an evening story (or few) for my children.
It is said to be good for a multilingual family to read a lot, but that’s not why I like it. I actually love the reading part: it’s nice to cuddle in, calm down after a usually hectic day, and now when especially the older one is able to listen to longer stories without plenty of pictures, it is quite nostalgic to read some of my old favourites from my childhood (like Vår egen lilla värld = Our own little world). I can’t wait until we get to some of the classics and other “bigger” books!!!
I’ve been always saying that I won’t be one of those parents who imposes their own dreams on their kids, but I definitely wish my kids will find the same love for books that I have!
What simple things do you love in your every day life? Is there something you enjoy and you wish your kids or friends also will discover the same pleasure?
