And for the latest edition of “What Miss L has said lately”…
We have a deal. She can get one trip to Applebees to have dessert once per month if she does 3 days of extra homework a week. Well, this particular night, I had carefully printed out the beginnings of a short story. She was to copy what I had written and then continue the story.
Now, I was trying to get a laugh out of her, so what I wrote was silly:
Basil Bath had a dog. His name was Herb. He was yellow with red spots. So was Herb.
L begins to copy it, then looks over at me, and says “I’m going to fix this, Mommy.”
“Your story. It doesn’t make sense.”
