Mommy's Little Bookworm

Bedtime tonight was a rather sweet sight.

Picture Miles, naked from head to toe, standing on the toilet brushing his teeth (after his bath).  See how grown up he looks brushing his front teeth, just like Mommy and Daddy?

Picture that tiny nude butt running, giggling, into his room.  Throwing himself on his bed, covering himself with pillows, so he could not be dressed.  Pretending to sleep, though his eyes were wide open.

Picture a freshly-cloth-diapered (but otherwise still naked) toddler, asking for "ook!"*

See him reaching for two of his favorites, clapping excitedly at his favorite parts.

Watch as he opens one, and begins trying to read it to me.  Fairly well, considering he's not even two.

And then, as I sang him lullabies, he drifted off to sleep, one book tucked under each arm.

*Yes, my child speaks Librarian.
