I know this is pretty small biccies on this site - but where else can I say it! - we discovered yesterday that DSjustturnedfive can read his own story books. There's a library reward program that offers tattoos and stickers for books read, so he sat down and read it out to us. I knew he knew some words, but not to the extent of "luckily he had glue in his back-pack" eg. DS6 obviously feels a little under pressure - so he sat down at breakfast this morning and read out Captain Underpants. He didn't get every word, but then I would have fallen over if he'd managed 'orthopaedic'. So why did this only happen yesterday/today? Sometimes (reasonably often?) I feel like just flopping my head down on the desk and giving up. My children are driving me crazy.
