A Little Too Open House

This post was originally published on this site

At Open House this year, I had a fun little conversation with a fourth grader from my class and her second grade sister.

Me: Wow! That’s a nice diorama. That’s a good grade on it too! Did you make it?

2nd Grader: No. My mommy did.

4th Grader (trying to save face): You helped!

2nd: No I didn’t.

4th: Sure you did. You colored and painted.

2nd: No I didn’t.

4th: You told Mom where to put stuff in the shoebox.

2nd: No I didn’t. She made it after I went to bed.

4th: Well, you’re not supposed to admit THAT to a teacher! You have a lot to learn.
