Jade loves books. Hardly a moment goes buy that she doesn't ask someone to read a book to her. She doesn't always get the response she's hoping for. Now I think she's discovering new tactics to get what she wants. Moments ago, she tried taking advantage of my concern for her well-being.
She hasn't quite mastered the technique.
This is how the conversation went...
Jade: (with pouting face and outstretched arms) Papa, my hands are falling off.
Me: (conerned) Why?
Jade: Because I want to read a book. (Translation: I want you to read me a book.)
That would get me to read for her, hands down.
She is learning quickly! It would/ did work on me!
She is a smart one!
