06:13 am: mostly about reading
Teddy's decided to use his Halloween candy money for the Lego Star Wars dictionary (which I've just learned costs half as much on Amazon as through Scholastic, grr). A good deal, I think, as I wouldn't have bought him the dictionary myself.

And yes, we have made our first Scholastic Books selections. I'm more excited about this than is perhaps seemly, but I loved Scholastic Book orders when I was a kid. No matter how broke they were (which was generally "very"), my parents always bought us books. And usually my stack was the biggest in the class. I remember how lucky that always made me feel. "More books! I have more books to read!"

I hope Teddy finds it just as exciting as I always did. He certainly enjoyed the selection process.

It's my reading day at Montessori. On the agenda are Llama Llama Mad at Mama (by request, after I read Llama Llama Red Pajama last week), The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and The Big Fat Enormous Lie.

I've been reading Harry Potter to Teddy at night, which I love. Reading aloud makes me slow waaay down, too, which is a first for me in reading HP.

Teddy's favorite parts? When Hagrid gives Dudley a pig's tail and when Peeves refuses to tell Filch something because he doesn't say please.

....brings tears to my eyes! (Sappy but true.) That's one bit of parenting I know I got right (just like my mama!)

not sure if he's too old/young for it, but my FAVORITE kids book these days is Leonardo the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems. It's also super fun to read aloud to kids (for the reader) :D
