Bookworm

6 Jan

Jade has long insisted on having books in bed with her when she goes to sleep.  Tonight I put her to bed around 8, as usual, having read her Snow White.  She wanted another story, but I told her it was late.

It’s 8:50 and I just tucked her back into bed.  She was sitting up in bed, with her light on, looking at a book.

I’m only minorly displeased that she is up so late.  The geek part of me is totally tickled.

    Yeahhh, role reversal in the making. Before long, we’ll be calling Jade to read us a story

    That’s cute. I used to be the same, albeit slightly more subtle with a flashlight under the covers…🙂 I’m sure subtlety will come with time… You just wait!

    Oooh, I LOVE that. My kids do this sometimes too, and it is completely impossible to be angry about private time with books, isn’t it? It makes me wonder if my mother knew I was reading late into the night with the pillow over my bedlamp…

    I love it too! I was (am) a total book worm and spent many-a-night up way to late completely unable to put a book down.
