Me: "Kids, your dad isn't going to be home and I have to zoom a meeting. You can watch a movie."
:::Mom zooms. Kids watch movie.:::
Me: "Sorry, my meeting went later than expected. You can just finish the movie and go up to bed when it's done."
Kids: "WHAT? And skip read alouds?" "No. That's a bad idea. Let's shut it off now." "If we shut if off now, can we still read?"
(I've already read to them this morning for a solid hour and then some).
Bookworms through and through.
