For months and months, reading time has been tantamount to pulling teeth for Ethan. He usually resists; he would rather be playing computer games or watching a cartoon or playing outside. Tough. I make him read anyway.
And then last night, the payoff.
Each boy usually picks a book to take to bed with them. And about 10 minutes after tucking them in, Ethan rushed into the famiy room holdling an intermediate Dr. Seuss book, excitement abounding.
"MOM! I read ALL the way through this book! To the end! So now I need another one! Reading is awesome! It's like every time I start to read a book, I go there! To where the book is! I don't ever want to stop reading!"
Welcome to the club, Ethan.
