Today Lila said to me, “Mommy. I think I’m ready for chapter books.”
My heart skipped a beat and I almost cried.
You guys… I love to read. I want my children to love to read. I was tough on this. There were tears. And frustration. However, my kiddos are bilingual and reading isn’t as easy when you’re learning two different languages. She’s in 1st grade, fantastic at reading in Español and now so good at reading in English. Sure, she stumbles… but her confidence is there.
And that’s all I care about: confidence.
So proud. Heart swelling.
(Did I mention that she goes to the library everyday during recess? To just hang out?)
