I'm pretty sure that other parents have seen this and kindergarten teachers see it all the time. But, when Trevor started really reading, it was all of a sudden. He went from having to sound almost everything out to being able to read out loud almost without hesitation. I know it's common, but it's still magical!!
This morning, he said, "Hey mom, you want me to read to you from the back of my magazine?" He has a bunch of National Geographics. I said sure. He came over and read me a really sad statistic from an ad for car insurance and how they are trying to make driving safer for teens. And, we decided we were sad over the statistic, but happy about his reading skills.
On another note...
Have you ever picked blackberries? If you have, you know they're ready to be picked when they offer no resistance when you pull at them. And, Trevor's two front teeth are hanging by some sort of gossamer thread right now. And, he's waiting for them to get ripe like a blackberry before he picks them out. And, I feel like we have a long wait ahead of us before we get our first visit from the Tooth Fairy.
