Kavi is supposed to read…

Kavi is supposed to read for thirty minutes daily for her homework, but a week or so ago, she started writing a story, and Kevin told her that she could spend that time writing instead of reading if she wanted, which she has enthusiastically taken on. How enthusiastically? Her timer just went off, and she came to ask me if she *had* to stop writing.

After complicated backwards calculations involving bedtime, bath beforehand, and three valentines she has to make today if she's going to stay on schedule for making them for her whole class (her choice), we figured out that she gets to write for fifteen more minutes, and Kavi has gone happily off to do just that.

And I call myself a writer. The child puts me to to shame.
