Carter has had a lot of starts and stops with reading Harry Potter for various reasons, but when he started it this time, it was a complete winner (much to my happiness as I absolutely love the series). And while he loves to read, this is one series where I put my foot down and said I would read it to him each night before bed so that it was something we could share. He has gotten so engrossed in the book, he brings it downstairs with him in the mornings and asks if we can read it until he has to get ready for school. On this particular morning, I was trying to get lunches made and breakfasts pulled together, so all snuggled in a blanket, he snuck in a chapter on his own. The whole sight made my heart happy, so I snapped a photo so we could remember.
