Reading Bones: 11/15/07
I like to keep a book in the bathroom for when I am bathing Harriet. My current bath time book is Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs. Since I was pregnant with Harriet, Ian has taken charge of Sean's baths but with him out of town, I now have to bathe both children.
Now that he's five Ian sits in the bedroom within ear shot of Sean. It gives Ian time to do some work on his thesis or to read and it gives Sean the privacy that he is starting to want. Last night when it was Sean's turn for a bath I expected that he would want me to leave for some privacy.
Sean, though, had different plans. He wanted me to stay and keep him company. More importantly he wanted me to read to him. I asked him what he wanted me to read, thinking he would want one of his books. No, he said, he wanted me to read from my book.
So that's what I did. While Sean bathed I read a chapter to him from Cross Bones. We mostly read about skull reconstruction. He really seemed to enjoy listening the to the book and I think we have a date for another chapter tomorrow night.
