We were at the library today, and Houston was looking for books to read. I pulled the first book of the Gallagher Girl series off the shelf and told him, "You should read this! I really liked these books! They're about a girl who goes to a school for spies!" He rolled his eyes and sighed heavily, said, "FINE," took the book, and walked away.
A few minutes later, i was sitting next to him as he was starting to read that book, and he quietly got up and walked away. I thought, "Well, okay. I guess he doesn't like it." And then he came back with the entire series. And tried to play it off as not a big deal.
That was at about 3:00. He had the first one two-thirds finished by bedtime.
Update on "The illness:" Katrina threw up from midnight until 2:00, and then woke up at 10:00 happy! Feeling great! Totally fine!
She wilted a little bit as the day went on, and spent most of the day on the couch, but there was no further throwing up, and she did seem to be mostly okay. So at least, if we all get sick, we can hopefully look forward to a short-lived illness. Yay?
