Story telling

To ensure that Aiden would pick up the reading bug from his Mom and not get afflicted by any of his Dad's ADD, we decided to start reading to him while he was still in the womb. Our hope was that he'd be very excited to indulge in story telling as soon as he came out. Until very recently, we hadn't had much success, and the dude's attention span was leaning towards his paternal side. He could barely make it through a couple of pages of 'Midnight Moon' without getting bored. Obviously this did not bode well for his scholastic forecast. Fortunately, things have started to turn around, and he's suddenly showing a lot of interest in reading. A couple of nights ago he actually made it through three books, 'Midnight Moon', 'TheRunaway Bunny' & 'The very hungry Caterpillar'.

He has even started mimicking dad's crazy expressions. Here he is doing 'fly bunny bird'& 'wind blowing the bunny sailboat'
