In his preschool years, thanks in part to my ability to read on a moving bus, he got a total of 2 hours a day of books read to him, which really built his vocabulary and also gave us a lot of connections, esp. through my reading him books I enjoyed as a child. Now he attends school near home, but we still walk together every morning (and he walks home with Daddy) and that is a special time for talking. Sarah Jane mummytocharis January 5, 2012 at 2:30 pm Thanks for this quote, “It doesn’t need to be perfect – there’s a lot of happiness to be found when you let go of perfection. ” It’s SO true and encouraging. When I’m not stressing about the apartment being in perfect order, I’m enjoying the time I’m spending with my daughter. She LOVES it when I sing and dance.

The extra minute it takes to put the sling on or pull the stool over is all worth it once you’re both together and happy and productive!
