Over Achiever


Addison doesn’t like reading kids books. I mean, she’ll “read” them if that’s all that’s available to her at the moment, but she prefers to pick up my books and flip through them. A few of the books on her reading list lately are:

The Birth Book, Dr. Sears
Naturally Clean, A Guide to Safe and Healthy Cleaning
Breastfeeding, A Parents Guide

She just walked up to my desk and here’s the conversation we had:

Addi: Mommy, where’s the phone book?
Me: I’m not sure Ad, probably in the drawer under the microwave where it always is.
*goes to look*
A: Nope, it’s not there. Where is it?
M: Addi, I don’t know.
A: Find it Mommy!
M: Why do you need the phone book?
A: Because I want to read it.
M: The phone book??
A: Yes!
M: Ok, well in a little while I will call Daddy and see if he knows where it is.
A: Ok. *stands right next to me and won’t go away*
About 3 minutes later, I say, “Addi go play”
A: No mommy, call daddy! I need the phone book.

Thankfully Daddy saved the day and knew right where it was. In Noah’s bassinet in our room of all places. I went upstairs and got it for her. She got a huge smile on her face and said, “Oh, thank you SO much Mommy!!” She’s been sitting on the couch “reading” it for 20 minutes. She’s currently reading the “W’s”

  1. Ahh, the phonebook. Good, old-fashioned reading material, there. 🙂 You better update us when she starts asking for the 27 volume World Book Encyclopedia. 😀
