Almost 200 pages, a sick kid splatted on the couch, and a new reading comprehension technique that I wanted to try [rubbing hands gleefully]... Cameron and I shared the whole book (Charlotte's Web) together this week and he absolutely loved it! He didn't want to let it go back to the library, but was OK once he knew we got to keep our record of "What we know" and "Questions We Have" (technique). Snuggly couch times are wonderful moments to treasure :)

This week's Objectivist Round Up: http://erosophia.blogspot.com/2010/01/objectivist-blog-carnival.html
I'm afraid nothing popped up this week, but he's been rather sedate fighting a cough/fever bug. I've perfected staying supportive, while not getting pulled in to the emotional trauma of the occasional emotional flooding. So, this incident actually made me smile yesterday... it was at least 45 minutes of wailing because, first I declined to get the cheese out of the refrigerator for him and then, I wouldn't cut it. Rough life for a kid. I continued to express understanding for the difficulties of his choices.
