Let's see...

My time is coming for reading glasses, though that time isn’t here yet. Many of my friends already have them, and it’s all in fun as they dive into purses or pat themselves down when menus arrive. Henry Mantu has been featured on this blog before, but when his mom sent this photo, it made me laugh and wonder if other kids do this? I know mimicry is one path of learning. I’ve been told this is how boys learn to pee standing up: they see dad do it! It’s also why they want to put foam on their faces. Henry Mantu isn’t old enough to read yet, but here he is, shopping for Legos, apparently needing mommy’s reading glasses to do so! He’s convinced he must put them on whenever he’s holding a book or other reading material…just because he sees his parents doing it.

Update: Kristin sends these photos as evidence to her comment. Apparently Justice has been doing this almost all his life!
