I was wrapping up work for the night and went to go check on the kids one last time before heading to bed myself.  As I rounded the corner in the hall, I noticed Taryn’s light was on and the door open.  Not that strange since she’ll sometimes get up to go to the bathroom then head straight back to bed and go to sleep (most of the time anyway).  Then I heard the rustling of paper.  When I landed at her door I was shocked to see she was sitting on her bed, feet propped up, wide awake, reading.

Me:  What are you doing?

Her:  ((looking at me like I must be a total flippin’ idiot))…..reading

Me:  Why?!

Her:  ((very matter of fact))……because I like reading.

Well duh Mom.  Sheesh.
