You always remember Valentine's Day, but what about the 100th day of school, President's Day, and Groundhog Day? (I'll be honest —none of these seem that important until you have a child in school. Then every other day you have a letter about bringing something in for another event).
On top of all these special "holidays", it's I love to read month. (Seriously February, way to hog all the events.) My daughter has been talking about DEAR (drop everything and read ) time at school. Although she is a little crabbier since DEAR takes the place of rest/quiet time, I still think it's a great idea.
So even though this holiday heavy month might be tough on parents of school-aged kids (especially since these holidays don't come with any time off), do your best to enjoy each one and encourage more reading.
