Friday Ramblings

I am thrilled to report that with the help of my daughter’s fantastic teacher and the use of the Bob Books series by Bobbie Lynn Maslen and John R. Maslen, my daughter can read!

She has been working on the books in this series and the other night, she came over to me with book four and read the entire thing to me! I was so surprised because I had no idea that she could read. She didn’t seem quite ready to do it on her own during my story times with her. Needless to say, I am thrilled. She is my little reader and will enjoy books as much as I do. I can already see it. My son? Still working on him 🙂

As for my own reading, I am reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult and The Prudent Mariner by Leslie Walker Williams. I should get plenty of time to read today because I am having a procedure done in an attempt to find out what the heck is wrong with my throat/mouth. Every time I eat, food gets stuck in my throat. It’s not pleasant! However, I really think I need to go to a ENT and not Gastroenterologist but I guess they are ruling stuff out. Since I am being put out, I am taking the entire day off.

My boss sort of indicated that she wanted me to work from home afterward. I just laughed.

  1. That is wonderful news about your daughter! I hope things go well for you today and they’re able to figure out what’s going on.

  2. Congratulations on your new reader – that is SO exciting!Good luck with the medical thing. Yeah, I wouldn’t be too excited about working from home after that either (although it would beat going to the office).

  3. I am so sorry to hear that you have been having medical issues. I hope that everything works out ok in the end.I truly LOVED Nineteen Minutes – and I hope you find it to be an enjoyable – and thought provoking read.You are truly blessed to have a child who loves to read. I managed to have 1 out of 3 share in my favorite past time.

  4. The Bob books are great! They helped my son when he was learning to read as well. They are fun books that encourage reading. Congrats to daughter and how exciting that she has the reading bug! I hope that things went well for you with your medical procedure and that you get some answers. Why would anyone want you to work after being “Put out”?! Sick/personal days are there for a reason!

  5. Oh how awesome that your daughter is reading. That made me smile. I love hearing about young readers. Books are a gift they’ll have for life. You must be so proud!I hope your procedure goes well. The problem sounds familiar; I wonder if it has anything to do with auto-immune disorders too. Either way, hope it goes well and you’ll get some relief. Let me know you’re ok if you can.

  6. Oh the thrill of watching your child read for the first time! I home-schooled my four kids for many years and had the privilege of teaching them to read–and funnily enough, I used those Bob Books with my last two!! We loved them. Isn’t there such a thrill to a reading mama’s heart to see the world of books open up for her children? I agree with Sofdrink—-going to the bookstore? 😉I was talking about the Dewey 24 hour read-a-thon coming up in April with my family-(only doing 12 hours for me though)-and my 13 year old Sam said he wanted to do with me! 🙂 Hope your procedure went well and you get answers soon–I am well acquainted with “procedures” to rule things out.*smiles and happy Saturday*Kim

  7. My daughter also started reading within the past six months and I too was really thrilled – just love to see my little girl going to pick out books on her own at the library! Hope you tests turn out ok and that you feel better soon.

  8. I hope you had a restful weekend reading after the procedure on Friday.Great news about your daughter … we love the Bob books, they really build on each other and are encouraging.
