I have been trying to figure out how to do story time b/c it never fails, when I get on the floor w/ a book, I am bombarded w/ 3 very excited babies. Needless to say, story reading is I.M.P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E. They all want to turn the pages for me & fight to do so. Then the crying starts b/c when 1 does it, the other wants to but can't. Story time has not been pleasureable...until Thursday!
Mommy figured it out! I think I am on a Wonder Woman streak this week. Must have had something to do w/ having to be alone for the week since my honey was out of town on business & I had to rely on my own devices. Or it could have been 1 of those 3 wishes finally coming true. Either way, what ever the reason, we can now have a SUCCESSFUL story time!
The idea came to me after they had finished lunch early on Thursday & we had some time to kill before going down for naps. I decided to get a book & read to them. This way, they were contained, I could flip the pages & no one would be unhappy. WOOT, WOOT! It worked. After reading 3 books, I gave each kiddo 1 to explore & discover. Sweet victory!
