Parenting Raising kids Raising Readers

Tell him, sister!

This conversation went down in my house this evening during my son’s bathtime…

Son yells to sister, “What’s your favorite thing to do?”

Sister: “Reading”

Son: “No, something fun!”

Dad interjects: “Reading is fun son”

Son (now at an angry whine): “Something else, something you like to play, something you like to do when you’re NOT reading!”

Sister: “Sorry, my favorite thing to do is reading, that’s my final answer.”

Sister comes into my room, where I’ve been eavesdropping: “Mom, did you hear that?”

Me: “I sure did, let’s high five it out”

Lesson mama learned: My quest in #RaisingReaders has successfully converted the girl, but I’ve still got some work to do on my son. Luckily, I’m still up for the challenge!
