Five-year old Charlotte: “Mom, I don’t want to do school today.”
Me: “That’s fine today. So no math, then?”
Charlotte: “Well, math is good. I want to do that.”
Me: “Hmmm … then no handwriting?”
Charlotte: “Handwriting is fun. I want to do handwriting.”
Me: “No calendar? No spelling? No reading together?”
Charlotte: “No, I want to do all of those things! And science and history and Latin. I just don’t want to do school.”
I am still trying to figure this one out. Is it the recess that she wants me to skip?
