Self-isolating means a few things. Cozy outfits, Netflix, and BOOKS. Lots and lots of books.
Instead of running around doing errands, we’ve had to be a bit creative about what we do with our time. So we’ve been reading all the best baby books in Sidney’s collection. I honestly don’t know how we would survive if we didn’t have a library of fun books to read right now!
What started out as a pretty modest baby library has grown to a respectable size. When the order to stay home went through in Illinois, my parents paypal’d Sidney a “book fund” gift, which we immediately used to get her some fun new books! We were all over the moon excited for some fresh reading material!
If you’re a parent of youngins, you know how crucial home activities are right now. If you’re a grandparent, auntie/uncle, or have friends with littles and you want to know how to help out, send a book! Most of these little board books are only $5-6, but if I had a dollar for every time I read Moo Baa, Lalala, I’d be a millionaire, haha!
I promise I’ll get back to the fashion content eventually. I haven’t been quite so inspired lately, as you can imagine. These lifestyle posts are fun to write, though!

Books are life savers! I borrowed a couple of books before last month and I would have borrowed a couple more if I had known there would be a stay at home order. It really helps get the mind off of things as well as keep the little one busy. My son is obsessed with trains so we have a lot of Thomas and Friend books, not sure if Sidney would enjoy them? I hope your week is off to a great start and happy Tuesday!

I love how you are embracing the time at home with Sidney! My boys are reading right now and we were just talking about ordering some new books. We don’t have much for my 7 and 8 year olds. We have lots of baby books and then books for teens but no in between. Time for me to go shopping!
Oh fun – yes! Reading is so important so I’m trying to instill it at a young age. You’re so lucky your boys love to read!
We have so many books as well! Although I’ve given away most of the really baby ones the boys had they have an awful lot and I’m always running out of places to put them! We have a big bookcase along the wall in the playroom that’s full, and two bookcases upstairs that are bursting at the seams too, haha! Maybe we will go through and try find ones we don’t need or use much any more while we are at home 🙂 But for now they keep reading and loving them all – it’s the best gift you can give a kid I think! 🙂
Thanks for the link up! Hope that you had a great weekend! 🙂 We had a quiet one at home of course!
I’m happy your boys love books at much as we do!
