I’m glad my younger girl likes to read. Even better, she makes her own stories but these are mostly when she has to do lessons. As her mom, I’m supposed to be mad that she isn’t doing her work but I love what she creates! I find it fascinating to have a glimpse into the way she observes tiny details and captures life as she feels it. Some of it is as is and the rest imaginary , usually targeted towards getting me to laugh. Like the one below.
She still reads the old fashioned way, tucks away books on her wishlist in hidden nooks at the library and locks herself in the washroom with a favourite book. What can I say when I’m guilty of the same?
