he reads

by Amy

this kid decided he wants to read today.  so he picked up a book…and he read.

sitting next to him, hearing him put the letter sounds together and beam with joy over his success?  it was enough to make me tear up.

even though we have incredibly tough days of not understanding one another, it’s these moments, these sticky-glue-like moments that keep it all together and remind me “This Amy.  This is what it’s all about!”

i stinkin love being a parent.  being his parent.
