Did I tell you how much Maggie loves to thumb through books. It doesn't matter if they are picture books, magazines or dictionaries, she just loves to turn pages. She doesn't have the patience to be read the words either, she just wants to get to the next page. When she gets to the back cover she thumbs backwards to the beginning again and again, back and forth. Sometimes she will pretend like she is reading the words as she flips the pages. The sight of it brings laughter tears!
Sara thinks I am crazy but every morning I put Maggie on her potty for a few minutes and hand her a book to flip through. She will sit there contently with her book in hand for five to ten minutes. It works to because every morning since we have been doing this she has been tinkling in the potty. It is a funny thing, the things you get excited about as a parent.
