My youngest son is 8 years old.
He spends most of his time smiling. I think he might be the happiest kid in the world. I’m still counting on him to be my Valentine, but I don’t know. He’s getting too cool for mom.
I still try to steal my snippets of snuggle time with him whenever I can, and reading together is something that still equals snuggle time!
He’s at that age where he’s fully capable of reading a book on his own, and dishes out the story time love less and less. But, I try really hard to find fun books to read aloud with him. I’m not sure how much longer I have in the story time category, but I plan on milking it for as long as possible. I still get bedtime stories every night and it’s probably my favorite time of the day. Well, except those times when mama’s really tired and can’t keep her eyes open.
I can usually swing a mid day story during school, too. A story after lunch is the best kind of story!
Do you read aloud to your kids?
In honor of my sweet baby boy, these are my picks for the best Valentine’s Day books that even boys will enjoy!
What are your favorite Valentine’s books?
