This is What Motherhood is All About

I loved books when I was a kid. I loved to read, I loved to be read to. I was taught this love by my mother, who to this day is an avid reader. I was too, still am, I guess, although now my repertoire of reading material includes such titles as "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," and "Are You My Mother?"

Well apparently, my love of reading has rubbed off onto my son. He has started "reading" to me.

It goes something like this:
"There's the baby bird. There's the cat. There's the dog. There's the cow. There's the car. There's the BOAT!" (for some reason, the boat is always the best part) "There's the plane. There's the SNORT!" (said with almost as much enthusiam as 'boat') "And there's the Mama! The end!"

I've heard this every night for about a week now. I don't think I could ever get tired of it; it warms my heart every time. After all, this is what motherhod is all about.

That's great that he loves "reading" so much! What a gift! My daughter always loved books and was an early reader! They're her favorite things.

I can relate! My Momma instilled a love of reading in me too and now both of our girls love to read. It's a real blessing to us to see them curled up with their nose in a book! Great post. What a handsome young man. :)

I love reading to my little one (2 years old). Although it usually has to be a short book or else she loses interest :-(

Found you on New Friend Friday.
