My little son Maxwell is not so little any more. I still somehow cannot fathom that I have a seven year old child! He is growing up far too quickly and in many ways I am not keeping up.

Last night he mentioned that he thought he might want to read the Harry Potter books. I did not really take him seriously, but we talked about it for a minute and then moved on to another topic. I always thought he was too young still and I assumed I would read them to him as the subject matter can get a bit scary.

At dinner I looked over at Max and asked him what book he was reading - "Harry Potter," he replied. What?! Max read the entire first book last night. You heard me. I went upstairs at 10:30 and found him still reading by the light of the bathroom. He loved it, devoured it, did a little dance this morning complete with an "I love Harry Potter" song.

When did Max become old enough to be reading Harry Potter?!

  1. Oh my gosh, he read the whole thing in one night? And he still got up and went to school the next day? That's unbelievable.
