One thing I did go back to, that I wasn't expecting, was reading together. As my kids have gotten older, I've returned to reading with them. It's different this time; now we each read a chapter to the other and talk about the story. I've done this with each of my older children, and I believe they have benefited from two things. 1) the additional one-on-one time together and 2) they've read books that no one else in their classes have read and that makes them special.
My A to Z posts are themed with food, parenting and life, but not necessarily in that order. Enjoy!
