A New ‘Tradition’

by Stacey

A few nights ago, Katherine asked to read snuggled under my covers instead of hers.

And then the next night, Caroline joined us. Perhaps because there was more room. Perhaps because Katherine and I are reading our way through all of the Ramona books, some of Caroline’s favorites. Perhaps just because it seemed like a fun place to be.

Whatever the reason, I’ll take it. Seemingly out of nowhere, it is rare for me to read to the girls together now. I still read to Katherine every day at least once but my daily read alouds with Caroline are no longer daily. It seems that I read to Katherine when Caroline is already reading to herself.

Tonight, Caroline wasn’t wasn’t with us when Katherine and I started to read. Katherine stopped me and ran in to Caroline’s room.

“Caroline! It’s time for our tradition!”, she shouted.

Two nights, and we have a tradition on our hands. Seems like maybe the little sister has been missing Caroline almost as much as I have…

    Lucky girls to be learning how to love reading and how to love each other…
