chapter books

This is one of those happy/sad things for me. I have them often when Tessa starts something new and exciting. She has begun to read chapter books. And she's started with Charlotte's Web. Happy because, well, who doesn't want their kid to read? (super funny clip by Brian Regan: here) And sad because this is my baby. And she isn't much of one anymore.

But lest anyone be concerned, she began reading this book with motives that were not quite pure. It seems her teacher is reading it to the class and she, my darling, my baby, my Tessa, was merely interested in getting ahead of everyone else. Yep. That's my girl!

I totally get the melancholy feeling when the youngest child moves on. Will I ever miss diapers? Will I ever miss a crib? Will I ever miss a pacifier? I'm hoping to find out!

They do grow up quickly, but remember, there is joy to experience at every age. Don't be too sad about what is past, but look forward to what is to come.

Perfect! I remember doing things like that. I don't deal well with suspense. Lol
