wednesday, feb 24: ash picks out a black lagoon book at the library, opens it as soon as we finish scootering home, reads it through dinner and american idol and then takes it to bed. after his normal 15 minutes of reading time, i come in to turn out the light and give kisses, and i see he only has a few pages left. "go for it," i tell him. "you can stay up late to finish the book." he does about 10 minutes later, his first-ever finish in one night of an entire chapter book. he is so excited and happy. i know that feeling, i love that feeling, i can only hope he cherishes that feeling as much as i do, and grows up to love books and stories as much as me.
