Ok, you have to be in the right frame of mind to hear the above Title. I am so jazzed right now!! I've got this stupid little tune from Nemo that Dory sings, I don't even know the words to it, but the above title is running through my head with this tune.
So, the conversation at our house this week goes a bit like this:
DD: So, when does the Library Summer Reading Program start?
Me: This week on Thursday, do you want to sign up for it?
DD: What are my reading options?
Me: Well, there's the "Read to Me", or the "I Read it Myself". You can do either one. (Age wise they will only let her do the "I Read it Myself", but why does she need to know that right now.
DD: No, I don't want to sign up, I want to do my own reading program. I want to be reading by the end of the summer.
Me: Ok, I have a good program we could start.
DD: (with a raised voice) NO, I want to do it my way AND WITH DAD!!
Me: Ok, but you have to realize that Dad is tired when he gets home and wants to play on the computer, and you will have to be responsible for pushing him to help you.
End of conversation.
That very night, after I have gone to bed, dd and dh proceed to read a chapter in Mr.Putter and Tabby Feed the Fish. Dh tells me about it when he crawls in bed. The very next morning after taking dh to work, I come home to find my girl sitting on the love seat with a blanket over her legs reading the next chapter to herself, but out loud. And she read it again last night to her dad.
AND I CAN'T PRAISE HER OR SHE'LL STOP READING. What's a mom to do??
On to knitting, I am almost done with the purple feather and fan shawl, less than one ball left to knit up.
I received this in the mail today, it took 3 days to get here, I am seriously impressed with their service.
I designed and knit these (from leftovers) last week for an afghan for a local homeschool mom who recently had a heart attack.
