Things I Love Thursday: The Princess Loves to Read

Today is the Accelerated Readers Awards at the Princess’s school. She’s finding out what I already know. That she is in the TOP TEN of the second grade for points. I’m not sure exactly where she landed, but I know she’s pretty close to the top.

This is her AR hat. They proudly wear their hats on Fridays with patches on them for all their points. Pretty impressive huh?

You know what? An award, an impressive hat. Those things don’t really excite this mommy.

What excites this mommy is knowing that her baby LOVES LOVES LOVES to read!!

That she’ll find a quiet place on vacation in all the cousin mayhem to enjoy a good book.

That she enjoys just laying around reading every once in awhile.
No technology needed.

That she shares her love of reading with whomever is around her and will always read to the younger cousin.

That’s what I love today. I love that my Princess LOVES to read.

  1. I love that, too. 🙂

  2. I am so proud of her and of her parents. I LOVE to sit with her and read and listen to her read to her cousins.

  3. That is definitely something to love! 😀 My daughter loves to read, too. My son – not so much. He is too busy to read. LOL!

  4. I wish Liv did. She’s getting better, but I’m always asked, “How much time left Mom?” 🙂

  5. reading is a wonderful thing and a thing that moms always love seeing their little ones enjoy

  6. […] Monday: Leftovers and then the Princess has an Accelerated Reader reception because she rocks at reading. […]

  7. I LOVE when kids have a passion for reading! I’m a teacher (currently a stay-at-home-mom) and I taught third grade before moving and having my son. I LOVED the AR program! Miraculously, my classes always loved to read and they really enjoyed building up their points 🙂 The crown is such a cute way to keep track!

    • The AR program was just getting going when i taught so I didn’t see it much with my students. We’re at a new school this year, and they are BIG on AR. She likes the competition and it’s a great comprehension tool. Her hat is awesome. Will definitely be a keepsake!
