Two Pretzels: Smiling.

May 11, 2016


Today Lila said to me, "Mommy. I think I'm ready for chapter books."

My heart skipped a beat and I almost cried.

You guys... I love to read. I want my children to love to read. I was tough on this. There were tears. And frustration. However, my kiddos are bilingual and reading isn't as easy when you're learning two different languages. She's in 1st grade, fantastic at reading in EspaƱol and now so good at reading in English. Sure, she stumbles... but her confidence is there.

And that's all I care about: confidence.

You guys.

So proud. Heart swelling.

(Did I mention that she goes to the library everyday during recess? To just hang out?)

  1. Keira checked out an 800 page Harry Potter book from her school library. She is clearly too ambitious! lol. We have been reading the Little House on the Prairie books together. I forgot how weird they are. Yet good!
