Because I was…

Because I was procrastinating revising my speech [speeches are hard], I ended up spending ten minutes sharpening and color-coding Kavi's pencils. She has a lot of them. She was sitting next to me, doing stickers, and the following dialogue ensued:

Me: Kavi, say thank you to mommy for sharpening your pencils so you can do art.

Kavi, obediently: Thank you, mommy. [pause] And this time, I'm not just saying it because you told me to. [big hug] Thank you SO much!

Yes, that motivated another five minutes of sharpening. :-)
