Granted, It's a Simplified Edition, But STILL!!!

I hate to admit it, but sometimes I catch myself yelling at my kids.  I had hoped it wouldn't happen, but really I kinda expected it.

What I didn't expect was how often the words I would end up yelling would be,


I mean, I'm grateful that Claire and Scott love reading.  In theory it's a good thing.  But sometimes it seems like nothing gets accomplished in our house because halfway through doing it one or both of the older kids sees some sort of reading material and gets sucked in.  Scott especially can sit for well over an hour in his room, halfway dressed and reading an Andrew Lost book.  Each time I come in to check on him, I tell him to stop reading and get dressed.  That usually gets us one article of clothing further along in the process before he starts reading again.

I try to corral all the books, but I swear they get up and sneak into new places when I'm not looking.

The other day I went into Claire's room and saw Scott like this:

Yes, he was snuggled up in Claire's floral bed reading Anne of Green Gables.
