To see my son dive headlong into a life of reading brings me a deep joy that I have anticipated since I first became a mother.
But this kid...
I don't have even a tenth of his eye for flair, but to see him cultivate his own taste and style...to shine in a way that is so uniquely him and find ways to express himself... It brings me a joy I never could have expected.
As summer winds down and our schedules shift, I'll miss the unscheduled hours we've had together for books and costumes. I couldn't be happier about how we spent our summer vacation and with who these two are becoming.
