Reading to Will has become somewhat of a challenge, not because he can't sit still or doesn't have the attention span for the books, but because of all of the questions! I can't read one sentence without three questions popping out of his mouth. I try to encourage him to just LISTEN to the story, but to no avail...he's too curious about everything else that's going on. Here's how our reading session went last night. Bonus points to anyone who can identify the book* just from the questions Will was asking:
What's that, Mama? Is that a skateboard? Is that part really a skateboard? And, what's that part of the choo-choo called? No, THAT part, Mama. Who is Anthony? Who is Nick? No, that's Anthony and that's Nick. Where's the breakfast cereal? Which one is Audrey? Is that Elliott? What's her doing? She driving the car? Why she driving the car? Are the windows open? They ALL going to school? Why they all going to school? Why the car look like that? Him going to frow up? What they doing at school? They coloring? Why they coloring? What's a jelly roll? Where are the sprinkles? Why him eating that? Why he not eating it RIGHT NOW? Is he hitting him? Is he pinching him? He's pinching like this. Him not supposed to hit and pinch. He going to get in trouble. Is he in trouble now, Mama? They at the shoe store? They going to get fancy shoes like me? I go to the store and get some fancy shoes. Remember that, Mama? Where his shoes? They at his daddy's office now? Where his daddy work? What they doing? What he eating? Is that ice cream? Why he hate lima beans? I like lima beans. What are lima beans? He in the bathtub? Is that Anthony and that Nick? Where they sleeping? What kind of bed is that? What are bunk beds, Mama? What is that Mickey light? What is that part of the choo-choo called? Him going to sleep now?
YES HE IS AND SO ARE YOU!
