Bonding Over Reading #PlaytexReads
I was finding it difficult to sit down with all three of the boys individually. They’re all at different levels and for some reason, I thought that reading “age appropriate” books to each of them was what I had to do.
Thankfully, I quickly realized that it wasn’t so much about ensuring that all of them were at a certain reading level but instead it was about the bonding reading provided us.
Instead of reading to them separately, I lay down with Jayden and Abel in their shared bedroom and read the classic books that I absolutely loved as a child.
Jayden will either read the book we have picked out for the night (which is so cute to see!) or he holds Isaiah, while I read a book to all three of them.

Reading to your children is not only important to help grow their vocabulary, language and literacy skills. But, reading can also aid in creating a closer bond with your son or daughter.
As a mom of three, making time for every boy is hard but not impossible! It is also important to help our children grow together and allow them to create their own personal relationship with their sibling.
