There is this saying that "Motherhood is the hardest job you will ever love." It's true. I love my children and I love my job. My love for my job shows whenever I have the oppertunity to read stories to children. I sing, I dance, and I have a great time. Afterwards, it never fails: several parents will compliment my reading style, and follow- up with the question/statement: You must read to your children all the time!
My answer always is: ABSOLUTELY NOT!
I love my kids don't get me wrong; but at the end of the day I am a momma just like you (unless you're a poppa but you get my point) and I don't want to read a bedtime story every night
