Today sharing where her heart belongs is the lovely Kim from http://kimthebookworm.blogspot.co.uk/
My heart belongs to: My son, my best friend and the love of my life Oliver.
I always thought that the love of my life would be in the form of someone tall, dark and extremely handsome. What I didn’t realise was that I was going to give birth to him.
I didn’t realise what love really was until my heart swelled with over-flowing emotion that ripped through my soul from the moment he was born. My life has never been the same! He absolutely and categorically owns my heart, lock stock and barrel!
Here are 10 things I love about my six year old Ollie:
I love that he loves holding my hand
I love that he doesn’t get annoyed when I tell him a million times a day how much I love him
I love that sometimes we laugh together so much over something very silly that we both cry, hold our sides and do a big “oh dear!”
I love that he says he’ll always love me and will always cuddle me, even when he’s a man
I love that he waves at the stars at night and says goodnight and blows kisses to my mom and dad in Heaven
I love that he strokes my face because he knows I love it
I love it when I say “you’re a smoothie” and he says “yeah, I know!”
I love it when he tells me I’m his best friend
I love every minute I get to spend with him
And finally I love that he loves reading as much as I do!
I’m a book reviewer and blogger and have normally got my nose stuck in a book. You can find my blog by clicking here. I love that Ollie loves reading too and I love that when he goes to bed at night we snuggle up and read. At first, I didn’t like it when he stopped me mid-story to ask questions but then I quickly realised that doing that while reading books with kids aids their development. It’s a way to talk about the story and let their imagination run wild!
A friend of mine is a speech and language therapist and wrote a post a while ago about the importance of reading to children. You can find that post by clicking here.
If you have kids, please share books with them from a really early age. It’s such a lovely way to be close to them and to spend great quality time with them, exploring their thoughts and minds.
A big thank you to Kim for sharing
