Little Reading Moments
So I have learned that when you adopt older children, you have to kind of lower your expectations some. I'm learning to do this. But it's difficult when I have a bio son that I have pretty high expectations for. Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating him. He's definitely not getting all the time and attention he used to get when it comes to reading. I worry that he's going to lose that passion for books that has been built up in him.
But this week instilled some confidence in me that he is still as passionate as ever.
He filled up this basket with books, pushed it to the top of the stairs, and then asked me to carry it downstairs for him so we could read them together.
He kept his brother company while he was taking a bath by reading to him.
