Blame the Hammock

Mom and Dad have been on M's case to read more. This of particular concern to Mom, as she spent most of her youth with her nose in a book. In his youth, Dad enjoyed books, but probably went for days and weeks - - especially as a summer-time 8 year old - - without picking one up.

A few days ago, Mom confronted M about why she doesn't read more.

M's response: "...I'm not the lazy type like you...."

OH MI GOD...that kid's got guts! There was a discussion on NPR yesterday about kids and reading...I think specifically getting boys to read. I will see if I can find the link.

I'm not sure I'd have survived to be an adult if I'd said that to my mother!
