Pam, WDM Mom

Our daughter learned to read the summer before she went to kindergarten, mostly because she wanted to do the same things her older brother could do.  She then promptly informed me that she didn't like reading because it meant she had to sit still...Last night she was bursting with excitement over the reading club book she had finished and how much she thought I would enjoy it.  She made a point of leaving it on my nightstand to make sure I would get to it! Thank you all so much for making reading fun and cool and not just something Mom says she has to do.
