We're finally home and back to our regular routine this morning. I have to say, renting a place with a washer and dryer makes coming home much more pleasant.
Although, I still ended up doing like three loads of laundry on top of everything we packed. Thus is life.
Today's Challenge #29: Read and Learn is quite simple. Find parenting books and read them.
Alright, so maybe finding the time to do that is not as simple as it sounds. I borrowed the entire Sookie Stackhouse series from a neighbor and I have yet to dive into them.
Since I had been traveling a lot this year, I had the opportunity to read more than I ever did, but since that's now over, alas, I haven't really picked up anything.
So, lame as this sounds, I leave books that I want to read in the bathroom. You can probably figure out the rest.
Fortunately, most of the parenting books I've read I can skim, or at least read as a reference book, so I actually do get to glean information from them without reading the entire thing. Also, you can get a bunch of these as audio books or on your fancy readers, which might make it easier for you to digest them more quickly.
Here are some of my favorites (these are all Amazon affiliate links, by the way):
1-2-3 Magic (great discipline book)
Protecting the Gift (how to keep your kids safe)
Parenting Beyond Belief (for those of you who practice secular [non-religious] parenting)
Raising Freethinkers (the sequel to PBB)
Tell me your favorite parenting books!
