Of course, this is wonderful! Even little Tanner LOVES to read books. Jackson and Jordan would prefer to read books to just about anything. Sydney, still in preschool, now sits and reads chapter books to herself too. I LOVE that my children are enjoying something that I am passionate about! You can't go wrong with having a love for reading, right??
Well, I guess that depends on how important it is to do OTHER things too. Like housework. Or paying attention to one's children. I know you could never imagine ME ignoring all else in favor of a good book (ha ha) but it happens way too often. I think my children are learning a bit too much from me.
Jackson and Jordan each bring home at least one book, maybe up to three books home every day from school. As soon as they get home, they read their books, then read each other's books. Then, they re-read the best ones. And Sydney checks them out too to see which ones she wants to read. All reports say that the twins usually spend any play time at friends' houses reading their books. This happens every time unless I specifically forbid it ahead of time. Alas, it even happened to Sydney. She met a new friend last week and went to her house to play. I asked what she did when she got home and she told me she read her friend's books. Tanner goes beserk if someone happens to be reading his favorite book of the day. He gets very possesive of his books.
Is it our strength or our weakness? Still not sure, but at least we can all read as a family!
