As I am writing this, I am watching my girl (on our new video monitor) flip through books on her bed…two hours after I tucked her in. The fact that she is reading is probably the only reason I am not more frustrated right now. I totally get it. She is a night owl reader. How can I be upset? I am most definitely one myself! :) She’s being raised by two readers. Of course she is going to love books. “Can you read this?!!” she asks a million times a day. & the answer is nearly always “yes.” I cannot pass up the opportunity to teach. & for her to learn. & I don’t ever want her to stop asking me to read to her.
My husband reads more than anyone I know. He is buried in huge medical books or journal articles for hours a day. He loves learning. He loves knowing stuff. & so do I. I don’t care much for fiction, but I love reading to learn something new. I enjoy psychology reading material. I really enjoy learning HOW to do stuff. Loving reading means loving learning. & that is one of the most important things I think I can pass on to my kiddos. Education is fun. & I think that attitude starts at home.
