Maisa’s reading log from school had two columns: “Read by parent” and “Read by child.”
Maisa can read by herself, so I told her to sit down and read some books and we’d record them in the log.
But she insisted that I sit by her. “YOU HAVE TO SIT NEXT TO ME OR IT DOESN’T COUNT.”
I assured her that it was fine that I wasn’t sitting next to her.
Five minutes later: “YOU HAVE TO SIT NEXT TO ME OR IT DOESN’T COUNT.”
I finally figured it out. Maisa thought “Read by child” meant “You must be by the child when she is reading.”
Little rascal. She’s too smart for her own good.
