I guess if you came to our house you would see how my passion has carried over. This isn't the best for an OCD cleaner, but it makes my heart so happy! I will take the mess any day if my kids find the beauty in writing and creating stories.
I was so wrong. He absolutely loves to sit in our laps and listen to books. He points to the pictures and (in Lincoln language) asks questions.
It can take us a long time to get through books because we have embraced all the questions about books. They will touch and feel and wonder about the stories we read. They now ask amazing questions-another aspect I love about kids. Yesterday, Avery was wondering how we got water and how water got to a water tower. That is one example of many. My hope is Mark and I foster this. My hope is we NEVER let a mean Ms. Cavert into our child's lives. Because right now our house is full of little people questioning the world!
For Christmas I have found an old school desk I'm going to fix up and fill a basket FULL of any writing material you can think of! I can't wait!!!
