46. Read to Gwen every day

Gwendolyn gets a bedtime story every night, and 90% of the time she insists I do it. I’m not sure why, as John really wants to. She seems to enjoy doing the girl thing and senselessly hurting his feelings. Jack and Madeline love books, but don’t let us read more than a page or 2 before they take over and turn the book upside down and flip the pages themselves. It’s a start though!

My favorites: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, If You Give a Moose a Muffin and Make Way for Ducklings

Gwen's favorites: High 5 Magazine (I ike it, but hate it for bedtime. It almost always ends in tears when it's over); Bible stories (MOST are great, but some are disturbing. Why are Joseph's brothers shoving him into that well?) and Ballet Kitty

Jack's favorites: Wiggles books, or whatever Madeline has

Madeline's favorites: Brown Bear, Brown Bear or whatever Jack has

Is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom about enchiladas? :)

Nope, it's about some letters who get dared into climbing a tree and then all fall out on their asses.
