DEAR time

We’ve had some fantastic ‘DEAR time’ today. If you haven’t heard of it, don’t worry, you’re not alone!! I hadn’t until I read a fantastic slow parenting book from the States (Slow Family Living by Bernadette Noll) which alluded to it in one of its chapters. DEAR stands for ‘drop everything and read’. A fabulous mnemonic which you’ve got to admit, translates into a pretty fantastic ‘slowie’!! And that’s what happened today, the kids quite literally ‘dropped everything’ as Nana emerged from the loft with a pile of my old ladybird books. The kids were fascinated to take a look and rifle through the stories that Nana and Grandpa used to read with me. Treasure Island, the Secret Garden, Robinson Crusoe. The dilemma simply being which one to read first!! We’re going to have to figure in some more DEAR time soon if we’re going to get through all this lot!!!
