    I was thinking about this a lot over the weekend, because we do a lot of the same things re: sight reading. Jack’s known certain words since he was very young because of games, and even though he claims he never wants to learn to read (he’s trying to break my heart, though I think he just loves being read TO a little too much), he’s constantly asking about game text and sounding out words and trying to figure things out. He does it with books and things, too, but he’s more invested in games, and he gets upset when narrative isn’t voiced because he can’t read it.

    Ahhh, they do everything that they can to break our hearts. He will find another way in to reading I assure you. Just wait until he finds out that there are books that take place in the HALO universe.
