Another conversation from the back seat: (Two grandsons, Tommy and Travis, ages 6 and 7.)
Tommy began to picture-read a book out loud because he cannot read many words yet.
Travis: Can you please read to yourself?
Tommy: No, I can’t.
Travis: Read in your head and keep your mouth closed.
Tommy: I can’t do that. (He continued to talk the book.)
Travis: Close your mouth, Tommy, and look at the pictures.
Tommy: (Oblivious) See this guy? He has a green shirt. Do you know who he is?
Travis: READ TO YOURSELF.
Me: Okay, let’s settle down and quit the fighting.
Tommy: Travis sat on my head yesterday.
Travis: We were wrestling.
Tommy: You sat on my head ten times.
Travis: We were playing.
Tommy: See this guy with the green shirt? Do you know who he is?
(Haha! 😀 This has been my life lately!) Nealie
