sweet reading

Jesse started something new this evening. Pay Sarah 10 cents for every book she reads to her siblings. I think this will be a win-win-win-win situation. Sarah has "something" to do. She earns money. She reads more. David and Leah are read to. All three are happy and quiet for 30-45 minutes. Sweet!

Sarah just walked in with a stack of books, to show what she read, but she could not find the Cinderella book she read to Leah.
S: Leah, tell Daddy I read the Cinderella book to you.
L: I read the Cinderella book to, (puzzled pause) me?

more sweetness...

I love it, Patricia!! Your observations of your kids are priceless... I look up to you so much as a mother. I miss Sarah, David, and Leah, but this lets me feel like I can still get to know them! Great pictures, too... you capture their essences...

I'm up WAY too late... don't do the math to figure out what time it is for me here...

Patricia said...

oh! thanks for stopping in Molly, and for your kind words. *hugs* We miss you too!

Were you really up that late, or did you just wake up early? ;)
