But then ...

... he comes to me tonight and says, as he sometimes does, "Mom? Do you want to come read with me in my room?"
"You mean we both read our own books or I read to you?"
"We can read our own books [he's in the middle of Redwall]. And talk and just, you know, have like a date, like you-and-me time."

I defy anyone to resist a request like that!

He started Redwall less than a week ago. He's his mother's son. Yesterday, Hannah started Ethan Frome while putting Caroline to bed and finished an hour or so later in the kitchen where I was finishing the dishes. When she starts a book she's hooked and I know better than to try to interrupt... ;-) She's my girl and I love her so!
