D and i got in a little one-on-one time this past weekend.
after being encouraged by
but two dear friends
who did this with their boys,
he and i started reading through the
Chronicles of Narnia series.
it was (of course) enjoyed alongside a bowl of ice cream.
i worried that he was a bit young for this book,
so after i read the first chapter i asked if he would like me to continue.
his answer was an enthusiastic yes.
(here he is doing the "splats" as my kids call them.)
he has just begun reading on his own
and i can just see it in his eyes that he is going to absolutely devour books.
he is going to be just like my sister,
who is kind of a nerd
growing up, i remember my parents had to make an official rule in our house
(which we all knew would only affect my sister)
that there could not be any reading while walking.
especially while going down the stairs.
yeah, like i said, she's a nerd.
and i can't wait for D to become one too.
