I'm trying to be diligent about finding activities for her that don't involve the TV and ordered two books last night to read for inspiration: The Toddler's Busy Book and Small Beginnings: First Steps to Prepare Your Toddler for Lifelong Learning. I came to a realization last night ... this may be rambly, but it struck me as true. My husband read computer books. He buys computer books - new, used, doesn't matter - and reads them to glean information to help him perform his job better, to make him a better employee, and maybe one day even make him more marketable if he wants to switch jobs. And, he just likes learning about computers and computer programs! Well, what do I do for a living? I am a wife and mama. It makes perfect sense that I could look for resources to help me with my job and I wouldn't have to stumble blindly here and "ruin" N1. :-) Granted the Bible is the first and foremost authority, but there are other fabulous resources out there written by Godly women and men that I can be learning from. Duh! This has been brewing in my head just after finishing a wonderful book by Carolyn Maheney called Feminine Appeal: 7 Virtues of a Godly Wife and Mother. I could not put it down. (For me to say that about non-fiction is huge). Anyway, I'm pumped to read other books and have a stack of homemaking ones here on my shelf as well. Now to decide what to dive into!
