Bedtime 

Frances: ‘Call me Ishmael’ – I love it!

She started reading Moby Dick the other night, and I didn’t reveal my reaction of surprise. 

Frankly, she doesn’t usually pick up (or even express an interest in) classic 19th-century literature at bedtime, but lately she will read aloud one small passage before turning to her more usual books of choice.

Then, last night, she found an audio version of Pride and Prejudice. She asked, “What is prejudice?” and “What is pride?” and then she fell asleep listening to the novel.

So, all this to say that our bedtime routine is changing to include more reading — and it’s a little surprising.
