“Never happier than right after a trip to the library. “I got a lot of reading to do,” he says with a smile!”
Don’t you just love it!
“I cannot stop reading because it’s so fun and whenever I want to look at the pictures I just read instead. I just want to read, read, read. It is so fun. I know how to read. I read library books and other books. It’s just so so fun.”
~ Adalie, age 6
Today it warmed my heart to watch my daughter thumbing through the dictionary. She has been carrying it around with her all week. She has been asking, “What is this word? What does it mean?” Then she tries to put the new word into a sentence. I smile like I am the proudest mom in the world.
I had fun babysitting a couple of our grandchildren a week or so ago. The one thing that Nolan, age 6, wanted to do was write his own Grandma Bubbles Book. So, for the next hour he typed his story, letter by letter. He knew how to spell many of the words without any help from Grandma. I was amazed at the terrific story he came up with. Way to go, Nolan! Now he’s after me to help him colorize his illustrations on my laptop!
Writes Angela B.:
I found a Grandma Bubbles Book underneath Nolan’s pillow. I asked him why he put it there and he said it was to help him dream of Grandma Bubbles and other good things.
After he was in bed for a while, I snuck in his room and took this picture. He was trying to be sneaky with the blanket over him and stay up reading, but I caught him! I pretended not to and just let him read.
I love you really much! I love you more than Princesses love their Prince. Happy Mother day!

I think you are marvelous because you read me stories at nighttime.
