This post is part of a series titled "Twinmama's Lifestyle Challenge". For more information about how the challenge works, please visit related links here and here.

Week Three: How Did It Go?

This was a crazy week! I spent a week with the girls at my mom's house while twindada refinished the hardwood floors, so my challenge was a little off this week. (And the reason for my lack of posts and visits to my fave blogs.) I did make more efforts to drink more water, but my mom's house is stocked with all sorts of yummy little goodies and soda, so I didn't stay as focused as I wanted. We are now back at our house (and the floors are done -hurray!), so I hope to work hard on this challenge this week as well.

Week Four...cue Mission: Impossible music...

Category?: Family

What?: Read to those kiddos! I will dedicate twenty minutes of my day to reading to my girls.

Reading to our children helps them to appreciate reading, helps them to learn, is an excellent way to have one on one time with our kids and helps them to establish a habit of reading on their own well into their adulthood.

How Do We Go About Doing the Challenge?: Since my children are quite young, I will look for opportunities throughout the day to sit with them to read books. These opportunities would include times when they are sitting and quiet and also before naps and bedtime. It is important to note that I will read to them individually 20 minutes a day.

Who Does the Challenge Include?: It includes me and my twin girls. (Also twindada if he wants to participate.)

Resources to Help:

TLC Weekly Challenges start on Mondays and continue indefinitely. I will post my results along with the following challenge next Sunday.

Good luck, fellow TLC-ers!

Right on with this challenge! I have been feeling so guilty about not reading more to my twins. And I am a total bookworm who loves to read!!

If there's one thing I love doing with my kids, it's reading with them. I love books myself so I'm glad my kids enjoy books too. Great challenge, esp reading to them individually! That would be a huge challenge for me!
