My baby just announced he was getting rid of all his "little books."
"I just need chapter books now," my first grader said.
And my heart took a skip.
What? My baby doesn't read his books anymore?
"I'm too old for this book."
"No Three Little Jayhawks?" I asked.
"No I love the Jayhawks. I need it."
"No John Deere?"
"I love John Deere!" he said, taking it back.
"And this one. I love this one."
"And I need this one."
It felt a little bit from the scene from The Jerk...
But what all I need? My baby to stay little just a little bit longer.
