So, the other day, this one told me reading is boring.
That’s right. Boring.
We were having one of those homeschooling days. Everybody was grouchy. Everybody wanted to be doing something else. When I told her to take a library book & go read while I did math with her brother, she came at me with her “boring” line.
I’m not going to lie, my heart skipped a beat. I have failed this child. Because I am their teacher now, I take their ups & downs with learning a little more personally. Not to mention the fact that the rest of us who live in this house are never happier than when we have our noses buried in a book. But there was math to do & other battles to fight, so I sent her off with her book & left the reading is so not boring battle for later.
A little later I found this…
Because reading is only boring when you are 7 & grouchy from getting up too early & really wanted some more iPad time. But then you open a Magic Treehouse book and fall right in.
