The boys

Random stories:\
I got tired and dizzy playing ring-around-the-rosie with Brian, so I transitioned us into a new game: I would dance in one spot while he ran around me. This morphed into us just dancing. At one point, I got really into the music and started getting crazy. I ran my fingers through my shoulder length hair and pulled upword, so my hair was standing on end with my fingers tugging to the beat. A moment later I looked down and saw B pulling on his short hair too, trying to dance the way I was.\
Brian turned down a chocolate chip granola bar for an apple & cinnamon rice cake at snack time. The boy is whack. Maybe he pulled too hard on his hair.\
Max started and finished his first fictional chapter book today, all 235 pages. Hurray! This makes me deliriously happy.

    *The BFG* by Roald Dahl. He’s almost done with *Danny the Champion of the World*, and I got him *James and the Giant Peach* this morning. The kid reads too fast.

    That’s so exciting!! I’ve been waiting for him to hit this age, I love it when kids start to read. 😀 I’m so glad he likes it so much. I pulled out some books for him that I think he’d like, and I made a list of others that we can find for him at the library. First though, he’s gotta read The Little Prince. I’ve been thinking he’d love that book ever since we first started noticing how brilliant he is. 🙂 What fun! He doesn’t read too fast, he reads just right. 🙂

    Funny how many of the experiences we have as parents are not so disimilar to those of other parents. BB, our oldest runs like a 1970s Timex. And since we live in a house instead of a field, she often runs in circles, or likes to be swung in circles. I created a game where we used my shirt as a type of leash and she will just go and go and go and go.
    Boy I hope GG is lazy like her dad….
