I mentioned in yesterday's post that I like to read to my older children while I'm feeding one of my infant twins.
And some of you probably tried to imagine the logistics of such an endeavor. How does a woman with a baby attached to her breast keep 3 young kids happily seated long enough to listen to a story?
The answer is story time pillows. Tired of being climbed all over by a gang of curious children who want to see the pictures, turn the pages, touch the book and elbow me in the neck, I made them each their own floor pillow for story time.
I took them to the fabric store and let them each pick out their own fabric. (Okay, I may have coached them a little bit to make sure the pillows would look nice with my decor...)
Because they picked out their own fabric, and each pillow is different, the pillows are treasured by my children. They *LOVE* to sit on their story time pillows. Sometimes even for an entire story!
When the pillows aren't in use they are stored neatly beside the sofa. (Or in the middle of the living room floor for everybody to trip over. )
These pillows have brought a lot of peace to our story time. Is there anything better than a calm, quiet story time to refresh everybody in the middle of the daily chaos?
Here are a few of our favorite books to read!
