I was recently reading a blog and the topic was about family traditions. It got me to think about what kind of traditions my family has. I’m not sure if this is a tradition but it’s probably the one that my daughter will carry over when she starts her family.
Ever since my daughter was little she would get such awful colds and flu. So you can imagine how bad bedtime was. It was so hard for her to fall asleep. When I was pregnant with her I had started buying books for her library. One of them was The Winnie the Pooh book set. Well lets just say Pooh Bear and Christopher Robin helped her get through the night. When she got a cold or flu at bedtime I would read a couple of chapters and off to sleep she went. She must have been dreaming of Pooh and friends because she would always fall asleep with a smile on her face. I have read all 4 books to her about 10 times. That’s how sick my poor baby will get.
Now she is a teenager and she doesn’t get as sick as when she was little but when she does she still asks “Is it time for you to read to me yet?” It’s not Pooh Bear that she wants and anymore. Now it’s Alice in Wonderland. Who doesn’t love Alice right?
I wonder if when she becomes an adult will I still be reading to her when she’s not feeling well. Um yeah! Of course I will. I wonder what story I will be reading to her then.
