storytime

true and luca's relationship continues to amaze me. true really does love luca, and luca responds with a smile whenever true is around. luca's eyes follow true's movements, it seems as if luca considers true his teacher.

last night, we had one of those family moments that brings tears to a mother's eyes, a moment that makes all of the sleepless night and all of the temper tantrums well worth it (i think). true asked if he could read a story to his little brother. of course, i told him, please do. we all know that at almost 3 years old, true is not yet reading, but he enjoys pretending that he does. who knows, maybe to true, he is reading.

true selected a few different books, but really did quite well with Green Eggs and Ham. he sat next to luca, "shhhhhhhh, i'll read now but you need to be quiet luca." luca quieted and looked at him. true began...
