A moment to savor from the week via Soulemama
1) Interestingly, the day this was taken I had just talked to Col’s kindergarten teacher about his fluctuating interest in reading and writing. His teacher told me that Col’s changeable focus is totally normal. She also told me that studies have shown that children who see their parents read and write are more likely to become interested in reading and writing.
2) So if you’re looking for a little reading material, I have a 2 for 1 subscription offer to the New Yorker, which I’m looking to share with someone, it would be $30 each. The New Yorker has some insanely good writers, which is generally what I enjoy about it. It’s easy to find myself engrossed in someone’s essay on their pilgrimage through Kazakhstan, even though that’s not really my genre. Because I don’t watch TV and am generally unaware of what’s going on outside our chicken coop, reading the New Yorker each week is like a little tour through this world. It’s also one thick magazine and comes weekly. Let me know if you’re interested.
Have a lovely fall weekend.
