I waited a long time to hear my kid say this.

9 year old in her bed this morning, book in hand:
"I wish there was a day where you could just stay in bed and read."

Me: "There is, bunny. It's called Saturday.

This is a huge step for the girl I tried to bribe with shoes to read just ONE book all the way through. She tests in the top of her class in reading skills, so it isn't that she CAN'T do it, it was just her FINALLY finding an author she digs enough to continue reading and reading-- maybe even in bed all day. Man, can I relate.
