When my brother was little he went through a stage where he didn't go anywhere without a book.
Meg loves books and has been an avid reader for years.
Recently Amy is getting into reading as well.
Yesterday we went shopping together like this:
Not sure if you can see but they're both holding books.
Meg shopped the way my brother used to do. Trailing around almost following us somehow managing to avoid running into people and reading silently as she went.
Typically Amy had her own way of doing things:
Mummy, how many countries participated in the first modern Olympic games?
Mummy, in gymnastics, what is the difference between men's and women's floor?
A) length of programme
C) use of music
on and on and on for the entire shopping trip. Seriously. And I thought shopping with them when they were toddlers was painful!
