Inside: Worried about being away from your kids? 5 bookish ways to show them they’re loved, even when you’re apart + FREE diamonds!
Every morning, my bleary-eyed son climbs into bed, pulls the covers up under his chin, and says, “Read!”
Thankfully, I’m usually one coffee in by then, so I pick up our latest book and do as I’m told. His warm body snuggles up closer as the story unfolds.
The PERFECT way to start the day.

Perhaps you’re separated or work away or desperately need a break without small people. Whatever the reason, being apart can be hard on everyone.
When I told my son about the trip, his downturned mouth, drooping shoulders, and trembling chin brought a lump to my throat.
How can we help our kids feel close to us when we’re away?
