This is a question regarding all of you wonderful moms.
I have a few friends who homeschool and during the 'school year' they restrict their personal (for fun) reading and other hoddies/crafts.
I personally hung up my sewing projects for a while, just because of space. I will pull it all out again eventually. But I don't really restrict my own personal reading. I understand these moms are doing it so they wont get sucked into a book.(goodness knows I have gotten sucked in and hardly come up for air ,when they were much younger, upon occasion) but isn't it good for our kids to see us enjoying reading/hobbies? That is a creative and constructive and that we practice what we preach?
I have one friend who restricts all personal reading during the 'school year'. Which frankly would not work at my house, we are starting to school year round and I would never get anything read. LolI also know another gal who only allows herself to read on the weekends.
I personally, so long as my 'chores' are caught up and the toddler is napping, try to read a little everyday during quiet time. Which is actually the time everyday that I require the rest of the kids to be in their room or somewhere else comfy with a book or two or ten. Lol we are book poor around here. ;o)
Just curious what you all do?
