Every night Ella is supposed to read 30 minutes or more and then write a few sentences about what she read in her school journal. So after a weekday night out at dinner and getting home late, Ella didn’t have time to do her reading. As I packed their bags for the next day, I started to fill out the form documenting the required reading. She sees me and says- "Mom what are you doing?" I said "filling out your reading form". She said "but I didn't read anything tonight" to which I said "yes, you did - you read me the entire wine menu! And you can say you learned that some wines come from France and others from Italy. A bonus, you had a very worldly lesson!" She wasn't into it. She made me write that she didn’t read at all. Overachiever. (And she made us look bad!)
