Zoomboy is assigned 20 minutes of reading every day.
He's supposed to read to us, but seriously? Twenty minutes of quiet in our house? When Mom's not making dinner, coaching teenagers, or out buying snack?
So we told him to read to his sister.
And she sits there and listens.
So what are they reading about?
I'll give you two guesses.
But I'm pretty sure you only need one.
The really cool thing about this--wait, the really cool THINGS about this are
A. The book is WAY above his pay grade. He struggles on anyway. I think he likes the fact that the pictures are gross and he gets to share.
B. His sister, who, for most of the day can't shut up to save her tiny, chubby, precious little life, sits rapt, playing with the hem of her princess dress, so that her brother might enlighten her about the grossness every night.
C. is that this weekend or the next, after he finishes the book (like I said, it's around a 5th grade reading level) I'm gonna make him these:
And then, for a brief moment, I can be a hero among Mummies:-)
