OK, you win

My 6 year old is pretty good at retaining what he hears.

When everyone picked out a book to read the other night, Lucy brought the same one as she did the night before, which is not uncommon. For whatever reason, though I didn't feel like reading it again so I asked if we could pick a different one since we just read it the night before. (I am a terrible mom).

Kilian very sweetly asked me if I remembered what they said on tv. I had no idea where he was going with this. He said, "You know...Give your child the promise of a bright future. Read to your children everyday even if they pick the same book over and over."

So, of course we read it again. Whew - I'm so glad he pointed that out and Lucy's promise of a bright future is still intact.
