Reading is a favorite past time of mine.
I do it, a lot.
Like a lot, a lot.
How do I do it with three kids (plus or minus a kid or two, or five) bouncing in and out?
Well, I read. Anywhere and everywhere.
Would you, could you in the car?
I would, I could in the car.
While traveling near or far.
Would you, could you at a school?
I would, I could at a school.
Because I am not a fool.
Would you, could you on a field trip?
I would, I could on a field trip.
While picking flowers with a snip!
Would you, could you while pumping gas?
I would, I could while pumping gas.
And ignore the kids who are giving me sass.
Would you, could you while trying to catch a fish?
I would, I could while trying to catch a fish.
Trying to hook one with a worm and a wish.
Would you, could while during snack time?
I would, I could during snack time.
The peace and quiet is sublime.
Would you, could you at the doctor office?
I would, I could at the doctor office.
In hopes of avoiding any sickness.
And would you, could you while in bed?
I would, I could while in bed.
Instead of resting my head.
Can you tell I read a lot of Dr. Seuss?
Basically, even if it is just for a couple minutes at a red light or while I’m pumping gas or in between ‘Look at me!’s while playing outside, I make the conscious effort to pick up my book and read. Every little bit adds up to a great deal of reading.
Well, there you have it, it’s been just another Manic Mom-day.
Now, go and take a look for a really good book.
