Thankfully - my husband was on top of his game.
He went out a few nights before and took care of where I was lacking.
Something that turned out to be a true treasure-- are these little babies....
Each boy got one in his stocking. (Thanks Santa!)
and in a different color- brilliant! Now the boys can't steal each others-- they all know- whose is silver, whose is blue, whose is green etc....
Last night the three older ones went to bed - kinda late for us 9:30. At about 10- when my husband and I finally tumbled into bed... and turned our light off-- I noticed a glow coming from down the hall....
I got up to investigate.. who left what on....
and they all three were READING!
My heart jumped for joy!
I can finally be one of those moms who can complain their kids stay up reading too late!
I didn't even disturb them... I tip toed back into bed with a smile on my face.
My kids have FINALLY figured out reading is FUN!
It only took-- how many years?
How many book clubs?
How many treats? How many bribes?
So WORTH IT!
