Bedtime Storytelling

Dear Diary,
Finally, I did it!!! I read stories to my children when tucking them in to sleep. Am I a bad mother for starting too late? You see, Imran is already 6 years old. I should have been doing this a very long time ago right. I feel so guilty!
In my defense, what I can say is that I just couldn’t do this when I was working. I arrived home very late every night. The children were already asleep by the time I got home. Since I became full time housewife, I’ve been putting off this one task even though deep down in my heart I want to do it for my children. Excuses, excuses!
So, last week I finally bought two books (for starters) for them. Imran is over excited. One good thing that came out of this is I don’t have to remind him again and again that it is bedtime already. He voluntarily wants to sleep early just for the sake of me reading to him. It is so easy to please him when he looks adorable pleading me to read to him. Another good thing is I can spend more bonding time with them and teach them moral of each story. I truly hope this will be a continuous activity with my two precious sweethearts.
