I had just settled in with my morning cup of coffee when the phone rang....
Jaxon wasn't feeling well and could I come and pick him up?
Of course! Who wouldn't want this smiley face for company?
Once back at our house, he wanted to read me his 'reading book'...Dad's Bike.
It was so fun hearing this first grader reading outloud to me.
Next he decided to check out the books on the bookshelf to see if there were any that he could read...
....and read he did!!
How we both enjoyed this one which was just perfect for Valentines Day.
He was more than content to just snuggle up in my lap and read outloud...
I could tell when he started feeling better when he stayed on the floor and read through the next books...
I couldn't help but reflect at how blessed I was,
to have this unexpected but welcome change of plans for my day off,
to spend time with Jaxon,
to listen to him read,
to snuggle in the recliner
to savour the moments with a little boy that is growing up way too fast.
