Since our sunny, swimming day turned rather quickly into a rainy day we decided on an afternoon run to Barnes and Noble. Zoë wanted a particular Fancy Nancy book and I will take any excuse to go to the bookstore. We were met with Fancy Nancy success as well as some choices that will hopefully be good airplane reading (we leave for vacation in less than 2 weeks!) and we just got home a short while ago and I was thinking that I would love to sit down with my book and read for awhile. When we walked in the door I asked Zoë, "What are you going to do now?"
"I'm going up to my room and read," she said for the first time, ever.
Cue choir of angels singing "Hallelujah!"
I smiled broadly and said, "That's a great idea, have fun!" And off she went upstairs to her room to read!
