Read to me, Daddy.

So far, in my 4 years of being a mother, my favorite thing ever, is to see Neil read to the kids. And, being that he's a world away right now, and we're missing him so, I thought these pictures would suit well to be shown right now. Every night before we put the kids to bed, one of us or both of us, read to them in our bed. They look forward to it, and so do we. Come Friday night, he'll get to read to them again. . . and that time just can't come quickly enough. I'm just now going to bed and he's probably just getting up. That's just so . . . weird to me. I could never be a military mommy. Kudos again, to those who are. You rate high on my list of admiration.P.S. That's a sticker on Maia's chest :c)

Adorable! Hubby and I take turns reading to Baby Bear before bed. And sometimes, when we aren't ready to get up for the day but she is, we slow her down a bit by reading with her first thing in the morning.

I second your respect for military wives. Hubby was 9 hours away for training for most of the first 8 weeks of baby bear's life, coming home every other weekend. I can't imagine how hard it is for military families.
