When I heard about Tuesday Teatime, I was skeptical that it was something my two boys (ages 8 and 11) would want to do. But I decided to try it and was surprised that it is the one thing that the boys don’t let me forget about! One of the boys has developed a love of tea while one prefers hot chocolate with marshmallows. Sometimes we do a read aloud; sometimes we sit and read poems from one of their favorite children’s poetry books. We have had a few special themed teatimes, but most of the time we just grab a box of cookies out of the pantry. It doesn’t seem to matter how fancy it is. The next Tuesday they always exclaim, “Don’t forget today is Tuesday Teatime, Mom!”
