Day 12 : Sharing and Kindness

         Our day 12 prompt is here. 'Charity begins at home' is a very apt saying considering our children behave as we do. So, we cannot pester our children to be kind to animals, share one's toys with their friends unless they don't see us behaving that way! So, mommies, let us 'Practice before we Preach'. We are soon reaching the half-way milestone of this challenge and we must not forget what we set out to do. Even after this challenge, I urge you to read to your kids every-day but before that let them see you reading and enjoying yourself!

          Since Swara was sick, she didn't want to read on the prompt. Instead, we read Rabbit's nap by Julia Donaldson And Washing Line by Jez Alborough. And then, I told her to take a nap a la Rabbit. Before that we did a Flurry Rabbit Activity (post coming soon on that!). The others read these many books -
