D, who turns three in a few weeks, just came up to me with the book "There was an old lady", which I just finished reading to her about five minutes ago, and asked "will you teach me how to read?"

She's been learning which lowercase letters go with which capital letters over the last few weeks, and comes up to me with books in her hand saying 'I don't know the right words', but this is the first time she has asked for help in learning how to read the words herself.

Many, many moments I've had as a parent have made me happy and proud for my children, but I think this one tops even their taking their first steps in terms of how I'm watching the world open up for my children. 

Wow.
