This morning Jonathan asked to read "a whole stack!" of books for our preschool time together. I was quite happy to oblige - I think that is my favorite request right now because it means I can sit down on the couch. :)
Preschool time is always followed by Quiet Time (i.e. play by yourself in a different room until the timer beeps time). Usually, quiet time is punctuated by many requests to "be done", but today the timer beeped and...no Jonathan. After about five more minutes I went in to check on him.
If he had been wearing any clothing, I'd have taken a picture. :) He was lying on his side on the bed, totally engrossed in a book. I asked him if he'd heard his timer, and reminded him that it was ok for him to come out now. He responded "ok, but just after I finish my story, ok?"
Yay! He's learning to entertain himself! And he's learning to love books! Does it get any better?? :)
