I was the child who hid in the bathroom reading a book. I would even pretend to take a shower (running the water), while sitting on the floor reading. (Don’t worry, I actually take showers now.) I am the adult who still prefers reading to cleaning, cooking, and most other things. I am learning how to be OK with this.
I do enjoy doing things besides reading, however. Gardening, cooking, hiking, sewing, and playing the piano are a few of my favorite things. I have a background in elementary and special education, but I’m currently staying home with our toddler.
