#Magic Moments – a trip to the Library

A trip to the Library is my magic moment for this week.

As you are well aware we love books in this house, and reading is something that has always been part of my life.  I cannot imagine a life without books and the joy they bring – knowledge, escapes, dreams and adventures.

As a child, my mother took me and my brother to the Library regularly.  I used to love it when the Librarian stamped our books and library cards.  It was part of our routine.  So to me, it was only natural that this would also become part of my routine with Monkey.

We take a trip to the Library every few weeks, sit and read some stories and then Monkey picks a couple of story books and a couple of factual books to bring home.

Today we went to the Library and met a couple of Monkey’s friends there with their Nanny and her little baby.

It was lovely to see 3 children engrossed in the stories we read.  Monkey and I read ten different story books and he was still sat next to me enjoying every page to the very end.

To me, this is wonderful, quality time, with my little boy.  He gets so excited when I tell him it’s Library day and he can’t wait to get inside the building.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Wonderful – my oldest just got his first library card, and he’s so proud to have his own card, he runs off to choose his books and take them out by himself 🙂 A love of reading is just the most important thing x

  2. Reading is ingrained in my life too. I’ve made reading a fun activity for my toddler and he just loves snuggling up with me to read! I wish I could go to the library though, but I don’t think he’s ready for it yet!
