Growing up everyone wanted to be a princess with a big castle. I wanted the library in ‘Beauty and the Beast’. I could inhale books getting through so many in a week. I don’t get to read as much anymore but its something that I hope to impart on Isaac.
I started stocking up his library as soon as I found out I was pregnant. When he arrived I started reading stories to him. He wasn’t fussed at all. He got a bit bigger and still nothing preferring to launch books across the room instead.
My dream of him being as much of a book worm as me had started to fade. Then one day he picked up a book and handed it to me, then crawled into my lap and demanded I read it. I only got to read a page before he got bored and toddled off but it was a start.
He’s slowly letting me read more and more to him. Maybe one day we’ll both be sitting with a pile of books! Book worm and book worm jr!
