The Rockstars “Reading” Together

One of those moments when you think OMG!! I Love Em To Bits!! I Want To Capture This Moment For When They Start Screaming At Each Other Over Who Gets The Family Car This Weekend! (Okla, not likely - there are 4.5 years between them)

Rockstar is not a very touchy-feely child (in fact he gets very uncomfortable when well-meaning parents ask their kids to come over and give him a hug), and so he's settled himself at a comfortable (to him) distance from the baby, as he reads National Geographic Weird Facts to her. Ms Rockstar has other ideas. (Where her hand is in first pic is the giveaway...)

Note the baby rolling and inching closer to him (and note Rockstar's super-serious "reading look" throughout)...

(After that she fell over so I put her back up on the pillow)

And then she started again... (I really love her hand there)... Rockstar's still reading seriously...

(But then I had to tell Mr Anal shirt-grabbing is fine at 5-and-a-half months old...)

Made it! Yippee!

(Houston, we have landed. Note baby's contented face)

"She ain't heavy, she's ma baby (sister)"

"Now, what was the book about?"

Other interesting (well, kind of) fact: Ms Rockstar is rarely asleep when Rockstar comes home from school. No matter what time we put her down for a nap, she wakes just before/ just after her idol comes home, and is impossible to put back to sleep til after she's had a Rockstar fix...

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Oh, this is the best series of photos of Ms Rockstar and Rockstar. I love it! especially Ms Rockstar’s expression on her face. Rockstar is so so much her idol. Soon she will be a fan of McQueen cars too.
