This one made me laugh for a personal reason (I’m pretty sure I told this story in a different context a while back here, so feel free to skip past it…
A few days before my son’s fourth birthday, as he was sitting on my lap and I was reading “Little House on the Prairie” to him, I noticed his head kept moving left to right and back again in sync with the words I was reading. I stopped and said “Zachary, do you know how to read?”
He said “Yes,” sort of hesitantly.
“Why didn’t you tell us?”
“Because I like being read to, and once you knew I could read, you wouldn’t read to me anymore.”
(and as it turned out, because I’m a terrible human being, he was pretty much correct)
