Like Father....like son...

Any of y'all who know Matt, probably know that he loves to read. He reads before he goes to sleep every night. In fact, he finished the Hunger Games trilogy in a matter of weeks. Furthermore, I bought him a Kindle for Christmas a few years ago and he still says that is one of his all time favorite presents! I call him an old man, but I think it is great that he can lose himself in a book. I wish I could do that!! I don't think I have read an entire book since I read Pride and Prejudice in 11th grade. I used to love reading books, though.

My dad used to read to my brothers and I every night before we went to bed. This is one of the fondest memories I have of my childhood. So, since Matt loves to read, I asked him what he thought about reading to Miles before he goes to bed. Matt loved the idea!! I want Miles to love books like his dad as well as have that bond like I did with my dad.

After our conversation, I didn't really think anything else about it until I went into our bedroom one night and found this:

Matt was reading Miles all about Greek Myths!! Even though Miles obviously doesn't understand (Heck! I'm 28 and still don't understand Greek mythology), he was listening to every word Matt said. It was so cute to see this. I just hope it is a tradition that will continue as Miles gets older.
