Reading Contest

Alas, I have issues getting my son to read.  He has struggled, although in the last little while, it has been better. Mind you I have been smarter about the books that I am picking up for him. Dogman by Dav Pilkey creator of Captain Underpants is a huge favorite. And he likes the graphic novel concept. Which does not bother me because he is reading.

So tonight he informs me that although having read three or four pages he was not going to read any more. So I looked at my Kindle and I had 12 minutes left in the chapter that I was reading. I challenged him to a reading contest.

In 10 minutes he had to read 15 pages and I had to finish my 12 minute chapter. He read 25 pages while I still have 8 minutes left on my chapter. Am I upset? Not in the least and the reason is that he read. He didn’t argue with me he just did it. And now I have an in. The only problem some of the books that he wants to read are on my Kindle as well. Which leads to arguments over who gets to read what.

I will bow my head gracefully and give in (I have Kindle App on my phone) if he wants to read the Minecraft stories I have downloaded for him. We also are working our way through a YA Novel The Ultimate Treasure Quest 1: The Jewel of Peru by Sharon Skretting. I have read him to sleep a couple of nights.

As you can see, I come alive when my son is with me. I smile and I laugh a little easier.

He won the reading contest tonight and I am extremely proud of him. Now am going to go and finish my 8 minutes while he does the winner’s dance around the living room.
