The book escape

November 15th, 2008 at 06:52 pm

Maybe I am wrong, but I have great difficulty stopping my kid from reading.

Last night while preparing for company I was grabbing a few last minute things out of the living room, I turned to GMC...and just couldn't interrupt his book over a piece of paper.

I put the paper in the recycling myself. Sure fire way to get out of helping engrossed in a book!

Then later noticed some clothes of his and did have him put those away...only to watch him read while he walked. Just like I used to do.

    I remember those days. I once got in an incredible amount of trouble because I didn't hear anyone calling me cause my nose was in a book. WOW did I ever get yelled at!

    I was like that too. My brother (who never liked to read) always thought that I read only to get out of doing housework. My parents never wanted to interrupt me when I was reading.

    I wish I could still use "I was reading" as an excuse today.

    My parents were like that with me. They never hesitated to buy me books or take me to the library, and never wanted to disturb me when I was reading...

    Yep, I was like that too. Always had my nose in a book. A lot of the pics of me show me with a book in my hands!
