Okay, ONE of us just learned from the OTHER one that, to be a good parent, one should read aloud to their children every single night, for like 30 minutes or something. Really? For real? I mean, that sounds reasonable in theory, but after shuttling everybody everywhere, getting house stuff done, trying to maybe take a shower on occasion, doing the whole sports/homework/dinner thing and just GETTING them into bed at a reasonable time….NOW I have to squeeze in quality reading time BEFORE they actually read quietly to themselves? I’m seriously barely hanging on here, people. Help!!
