the radio I'm trying to read!" This was what difficult child said to me on the drive to Michigan on Thursday. No he didn't ask nicely at all-it was in a very rude, demanding gfgish tone but I can't tell you how it warmed my heart to hear this. difficult child is 10 and only reading at a late kindergarten level. He has never showed an interest in reading and has a severe learning disability. That night as we carried him into Grandma and Grandpa's he woke up to ask to be sure we left him his two books (easy reader type). The next day he was reading them with-one of his cousin and then on Sunday on the ride home he read a couple of pages (struggling but still reading) to husband and me! I'm just hoping maybe he is finally showing some reading readiness! It's interesting because easy child has always read so above her age level and we were always so proud of her but this is different to see difficult child who has always struggled begin to show an interest has me every bit as proud.
