Burl's First Book


We all have "can't wait" mothering moments. 
I can't wait for them to take their first steps...
I can't wait until they have a sibling...
I can't wait to watch them make a friend...
Among my Can't Wait moments, I've looked forward to watching the older sibling read to the younger one. It happened this week. Burl read a book to Fern. Burl was slow and patient, making sure his sister could see the pages. He worked hard on those sounds, making several little faces at all the big words. Fern hung onto each page. 



It felt as wonderful as I imagined. This is another way that they can be siblings-Burl reading to Fern and Fern paying attention.
