I hope all the mothers out there have a wonderful day! I just wanted to pop on and share a few images that make this mommy's heart warm and fuzzy...
My son offered to brush his sister's hair so she didn't have to stop playing her Leapster game yesterday morning while we were getting up and ready for the day. The funny thing...she was playing her Disney Tangled cartridge, LOL! She never cried or fussed while he did it, which is usually less drama than I have during a hair brushing session. I know, maybe I should sing while I do it...
Then, it was off to the library. My son came home with a prized book borrowed from his 1st grade teacher's private shelf. After he devoured it Friday evening, we were off to see if we could find more books in this wonderful series. We came home Saturday AM with the first 4 books, which he had completed by Saturday evening.
I did have to go back to the library that afternoon (because I forgot to "unlock" the DVD case for the movie I checked out for my daughter), and snuck out another 4 books for my son. Here's the pic from this AM, I couldn't even get him to change from jammies before he was asking if there was more he could read.
Now, if you'd have asked me three months ago...we were fighting to get him to read even 5 pages from his "Book in a bag" that he brought home each week from school. I am so pleased to see the change in his reading attitude recently. So, what books are they that turned my 1st grade reader from, pbbbssst... to YEAH!???
Thankfully there are 40 books in the series, which may get us until summer break starts...then what?
BTW, thanks for the words of encouragement on the last blog post. I certainly feel a "boost".
