As we all know or you can read my name on my blog that i am a mother!!! If you did not know, you do now lol.
Being a mother of FOUR and reading i thought was going to be the hardest thing i could do, cause at some point i want to be good at it where i can maybe have it as a life long hobby. I just started really reading this year and man some days i wish i could read a book in Two days or do that 24 hour readathon but i know as a mother i can not do that!
So instead i have put my reading to a new level in my life, kids come first, husband second, reading third and book photography ( Instagram fourth ) and maybe if i have friends they can come in between reading and book photography.
So here are ways i read as a mother:
Schedule, Schedule, Schedule… Since i have to schedule things for my children like, Karate, Soccer, Appointments why not schedule the reading in as well. But lets be honest i think as a reader we should schedule it anyways!
Find the perfect time to read, if you can read with noise that would be perfect!!! specially as a mother. My reading times usually are before breakfast (if i wake up at a decent time), While they are at school (that is my quiet time), Maybe get a chapter in after dinner before kids bedtime and then last is before my bedtime!
Now even though i do not work!! i still have things i need to do while i also want to read. Like Cooking, Dishes, Laundry, Cleaning up toys and dirt. (you get the picture there) Also Budget (need to know if i have enough for books yeah know lol) Meal plan and appointments. So in between all of this is my reading time!
I do how ever get distracted and i think everyone does but that is okay! My distractions are NETFLIX!!!!! SIMS 4!!!! and talking to people cause even though you have a life with your imaginary book friends you still need to be sane and have some real ones.
No matter is you are a new mom, working mom, or a stay at home mom. YOU have time to read. Even if you wanna read to your children which by the way is the best thing you should do. Don’t just pick a book you think is good for them pick one that is good for both of you like Percy Jackson, or Harry Potter and more!
I hope you enjoyed my list, well not really a list just letting people know being a mom you can still read!!! i love it.
What are ways you read or put reading into your schedule? You do not have to be a mom to answer!
