Lately, Jaxon has been sitting next to me while I’m reading. He takes a book, starts babbling cute sounds and even drinks his milk as if it was coffee like mommy. So I decided to make “reading together” a part of our morning routine.
With a two years old toddler this adorable routine lasts just a few minutes. Then he finishes “reading”, and he’s ready to start jumping on the sofa or climbing all over me. So I discovered that we both end up closing the books without saving the pages. Of course, is easier to come back and find the pages in Jaxon’s tiny books. But for me, it’s much more work.
Special Note: One of Jaxon’s favorite books is El artista que pintó un caballo azul by Eric Carle. It’s a great book for the little ones, about color, art and creativity. Find that Spanish Edition here and the English Edition here.
To make this routine more successful, and be able to find the pages later, I had the idea of making two bookmarks. One is for mommy and one for Jax since I knew he would love having his own.

Jaxon had a fever and a cold for almost five days last week, so we were extremely happy to be able to leave the house last Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the sunny weather. We even took some books and the bookmarks with us. It was a lot of fun.
