Ha ha ha… what stages are the kids currently in? My 15 year old just started reading a book for school and even though he’s a great reader, he hasn’t read a book in years. My 13 year old finds books loathsome. Kylah is 11 and she reads frigging 600 page adult novels. Katie (9) has learning disabilities and struggles in everything except…reading. She reads anything and everything, bless her heart. Ethan is 8 and reads all of the Geronimo Stilton and Captain Underpants books. Grammar is brutal, but it’s still great that he’s got a book in his hands. PHEW… that’s a lot of kids. You should REALLY see the pile of self-help books that I have in my bedside table!!!!!!!!!

I will be OWNING Thursday. I *hope*. :)

Have a great day!
