The Convincer.

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!
