Sunday postcard! MMM/ memories

Bedtime stories at our house!!!
My painting and interpretation of
Goodnight Moon!
Our boys love books! I used to love to read them a story at night and it got so they could "read" along with me even though they couldn't read yet!
I even used to make them take "book rests" instead of naps. They would pick out their favorite stories and sit on the bed .....usually fell asleep and if not, they were resting!!!
