Time for a little bragging

Bear with me while I take this opportunity to brag.

What?! It's my blog and I'll brag if I want too ...

You see, I am just so very proud of my Little Boo right now.  He did something so amazing. It has blown me away, and he is so proud of himself too.

He read a book to me. A whole book, start to finish. On his own. And we'd never read it before, so it wasn't memorised.

OMG! right?

OK, so it was a toddler book, and had about 6 words max on a page and lots of repetition. But he did it! And we are over the moon excited for this milestone. The book arrived in the mail, unexpected, from our book club (clearly I forgot to respond to this selection). And I asked him to read it to me just to see if he could or would.  And this was the first time he actually did.  He didn't realise himself what he'd done, until I pointed it out. Then you should have seen his little face light up. He is freaking proud of himself for this accomplishment.

And here's the book:
It's a cute book with adorable illustrations, and it will forever have a special place in our family. I love reading and I truly hope Little Boo continues to love the experience of books as well.
