A milestone worth remembering. He’s been reading for a while. Words here and there. (Also words like here and there.) But earlier this week we reached a new milestone.

Henry chose a book to read. Jack and Henry and I sat down together and each word I read Jack was whispering under his breath. After the first page- I stopped and asked him if he wanted to read.

“Sure, mommy. I can read.”

And he was right. He can read.
