No, it’s not what you think. Get your head out of the gutter! 😛
I’m talking about me stuck amongst one large male of a husband and two tiny (soon to be large males) Gremlins.
Well, maybe only my younger one is the Gremlin (though he looks like Gismo), my older one is quite well behaved, except that sometimes, he has so much nervous energy he doesn’t know where to focus it all.
Like this morning – I’m trying to teach him to read, and for a boy who’s extremely smart, who’s logic is ironclad, he just can’t seem to get the pattern of words. Double ee makes E sound, tree, see, cheek, meet, etc. Just couldn’t get it.
I’m afraid I wasn’t the most patient of teachers either, because he kept moving his limbs around every which way and couldn’t sit still to save his life.
Anyone has any advice on teaching little boys to read??

This is Aja (pronounced Asia). Welcome to my site!
A bit about myself:
I’ve been writing stories since the age of six, and novels since the age of thirteen. Can’t say that those early efforts were particularly good, but I sure loved putting them down on paper! And whether I document them or not, stories are forever forming and expanding and interconnecting in my head.
The best part is–it’s completely organic, the way the stories develop. When the inspiration hits, I write just so I myself can learn where the characters are headed because oftentimes, they take me by surprise! It is my ultimate dream to become a best-selling novelist one day and share my stories with as many readers as I possibly can.
My other loves include art, cooking, old movies (anything with Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Redford, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Clark Gable, and all the song and dance numbers because you can’t watch them and not be happy!)
I adore taking long walks with my husband and running after my two rambunctious kids. I have traveled extensively (all seven continents except Antarctica) and have a multi-cultural upbringing. I speak two and a half languages and binge watch TV shows when the mood strikes.
I love hearing from readers, so please contact me directly! Subscribe to this blog to get the latest news and updates and free chapters in upcoming books!
Ciao for now!
