Today I had to buy a birthday present for Jeckle to take to a birthday party. My go to gift is a voucher to one of our local bookstores. I dragged Heckle with me. Of course, when we arrived, he saw a new release – the next in a series he’s reading. Needless to say, by the time we left the store, he also had the book in his hand.
The 6 boxes of books stacked in the hallway are a reflection of my one weakness when it comes to the kids. Those boxes are full of books the Barbarians are now too old for.
Both the boys are bookworms, and knowing how reading can enrich lives, help through times when they are tough and help with language development – as well as simply giving pleasure – I have no regrets about the number of books that have come into our lives. I’d do the same again.
Of course, my weakness doesn’t apply to just the Barbarians. I do the same for The Hub and myself.
Do you have a weakness when it comes to shopping?
