I've decided that when one of the children is sleeping I should take advantage of being a little less occupied and use that time productively. My first preference will be reading, scriptures hopefully, since that's something I try to do every day.
Day one went like this:
Success - I got some good reading in. I got some lovely cuddles with Sadie. Sure my reading was punctuated with Dr. Seuss, The Nose Book and other favourites. But I think it's nice for Sadie to see me reading too. The power of example you know.
Failure - I still can't keep awake after reading in the sunny afternoon. I suppose a good place to start at changing that would be to read at a table rather than laying on my bed. It just makes it too easy.
