It didn't take us long to figure out that Abby was the reason the outside lights on the front of our house were always on. Each night, after everyone was tucked in bed, she would sneak over to sit beside her window, turn the outside light on, and read by the light that shone in through her blinds.
So we bought her a little lamp that clips onto her headboard, and now every night looks like this.
Her current reading list includes Alice and Wonderland, the Miss Piggle Wiggle series, and an old book on how things work that I picked up at a consignment sale. (Abby generally has three or four books going at a time. She gets that from me.)
When I left, she was educating herself on how leather is made and how shoes are put together. I expect we'll hear a full report on how my boots came to be over breakfast.
