I know she won't read to him forever, but I love that she reads to him now.
One night I heard the sound of Ella reading, and for a really long time, which piqued my curiosity. When I peeked into his bedroom I discovered that she had secured blankets all around his bunk bed and created a cozy reading nook. They read for at least an hour that night.
Sure, she's racking up the minutes for her reading contest, but I know she enjoys this as much as he does.
When I say my little guy has three mommies I'm not kidding. His sisters love him, play with him, discipline him (kind of an issue…) and they spoil him. Of course, they also fight and compete like typical siblings more often than I like. But when that happens I think about moments like this.
It was all I could do to capture the moment and quickly exit, rather than jump in and join them. Sometimes they just need to be Ella and Owen, reading a book before bed.
