Every night it's the same routine.
"Mom, can you read me some stories?"
Bedtime stories. Mmm.. It has been the same for the past (close to) 5 years. I do enjoy these sessions as much as he does. That is, when I am not tired, lazy or thirsty or wanting to chat with friends online.
Now that he is quite literate, I do encourage him to read on his own. It's not because I am tired, lazy or thirsty or wanting to chat with friends online... it's to enhance his reading skills, okay? *ahem*
But still every night, I hear, "Mom, can you read me some stories?"
Yesterday I just have to find out why. What is the difference between me reading and him reading the books on his own.
I suspected one of the below:
a. I am lazy
b. the words are too hard
c. I just don't want to sleep so I am delaying bedtime
..which I knew he wouldn't have the guts to say it, but still I was really curious of his reply. I wanted to see how he could explain himself.
But, I was in for a surprise for..
..he had said meekly, "I like your voice reading.."
I didn't know that.
And I just have to ask, "Do you want me to sing instead of read then?"
He said NO with an exaggerated tone.
But now I know.. I should read to him as long as he wants me to.
Do you want to hear me sing? Don't let me TSK you!
