Tonight MB brought home 2 new library books.
I couldn’t contain my excitement.
The BFG and her first Babysitter Club book.
They both made me smile for a couple reasons.
One…her passion for reading continues. No complaints when its time to read and sometimes she gets lost in the book. I have been known to let bedtime slide as she sits next to me buried in the pages of a good book.
Two…these are books I remember. These are books I loved. Does anyone remember whizzpoppers??? Or Stacy???
Third…I was a little jealous…she has to read 75 min a week and easily gets in 100 min or more. Ahh what I wouldn’t get for 100 min of reading each week that I was required to do. I must admit that lately I have had moments of wanting to start a new book and then I talk myself out of it because there are million other things I should be doing or knowing that I will start reading and then not get to touch it again for weeks.
So for now I will live through her…and think about the next vacation when I can bring along a couple good books!
