the wishing chair

Years ago I made a list of books I want to read to my children someday. Which included this old classic favourite. When Nathan turned three, I made an attempt at reading a chapter or two out loud to him… which kind of fizzled. So I tucked my beloved book away. Someday was not here yet.

Fast forward two years later.

Earlier this year, I tracked down a copy of the book from the library which had coloured illustrations and decided to give it another go.

I told Nathan that this book used to be one of my favourite books I loved to read when I was a little girl… (Yes, yes, I know, I did do a little bit of a shameless sell of the book). It peaked his curiosity… or maybe he was just being the nice little guy he is and agreed to let me read a chapter out loud.

And now he’s hooked.

I am so, so, incredibly stoked.

I think I am the one who looks forward the most to our regular readings of each chapter throughout the week.

The kids can probably sense my excitement and enthusiasm over these readings. And they lap it all in.

At the end of each chapter we read, Nathan always flips the page and asks me to read out the title of the next chapter. “We will read it tomorrow Grace then declares solemnly.

I love it.

Although it’s sometimes hard saying goodbye to the baby years, it’s also wonderful to think about the awesome things to look forward to sharing with them in the years to come.

And reading these favourite books with my kids is like opening a window back to my childhood.

There are precious few things in the world that can do that.

That is true magic.

I am so excited to be travelling with my two small companions to chocolate factories, giant peaches, magic wardrobes, tea parties on the ceiling, frontier prairies, rabbit holes, yellow brick roads and wizarding schools.
