one of my greatest prides as a mother is that my children love to read. I am an avid reader and reading is an intrinsic part of who I am. Books make me happy, help me through rough patches, seem to find me when I need clarity and I cannot imagine living without books.
So yesterday I was helping L organize her backpack 😱 I noticed that her reading log was getting all crumpled and that her books were at the bottom of the bag. I thought she needs a book bag and to make it even more fun, I should see one. It took me a bit of thinking to figure out the design and a trip to JoAnn for fabric (that I didn’t need obviously because I used some of my stash). Anyway now her books are well protected and I feel like I accomplished something today.
