This year for Christmas, we scaled way back on what our kids received for Easily distracted by books shirt. It was never really big, to begin with, but this year, the few gifts they did receive were much less substantial and way more thoughtful. Including the books. If there’s one thing my kids know they are going to receive for Christmas every year, it is booked! But finding just the right books for each child can be tough. Especially for Andrew. Brady is a reader, always has been. So finding something that he will enjoy reading is usually pretty easy. Andrew, not so much. Granted, he has probably read dozens of more books than a lot of adults I know, but finding something that can hold a 15-year-old boy’s interest for more than 10 minutes can be tough.

So as I’m lying there on the couch reading last night, around midnight I noticed that the light in the Easily distracted by books shirt. Shortly after that, Andrew, who has been in there reading one of the books he received for Christmas, walks back into the living room and announces. He then asked if he could stay up and read a few more chapters. Well, hell yeah you can stay up and read, dude!! After finding a stopping point around 1 am, he came back in sporting a huge smile on his face and said that this book was one of his favorite gifts. This, my friends, was a proud parenting moment. I can’t begin to articulate what I learned that day, but I now understand enough to change our family’s eating style.
