Reading Before Bed

This is what I'm doing most nights with Willem. We're currently reading The Kite Runner, which has some content that many would deem unsuitable for a 13-year-old. But it's a wonderful story, and I've decided that if he's watched "Family Guy" he can read about love, betrayal, violence, and ultimately redemption in Afghanistan. Sometimes I have him read aloud, but usually I read to him until he falls asleep. I love this time with him.

A mother and son.
She reads. He listens, eyes closed
then drifts into sleep.
