“Oh Mommy. I really want to hear a chapter book. No picture books tonight.”
What happened to the baby I snuggled as we read Time for Bed again and again? Where is the toddler who nibbled on the board book version of Brown Bear Brown Bear as I pointed out the words and pictures? When did the pre-schooler who begged for Seven Silly Eaters night after night go away?
I know that the baby, toddler and pre-schooler are all wrapped up in the big girl who only loves chapter books right now. I know that but I am still reminded of how fast these days fly.
I will hold my big girl a bit tighter tonight as I read her favorite chapter book wondering what kind of reader she will be by tomorrow…
