This is an actual conversation I had on Sunday with A. This really happened, I have three adult witnesses.
A: “Mom? Can I have a piece of paper please? The printer is out and I need to copy more.”
A: “I need to copy a piece of paper to make more.”
Me: “You can’t do that, I’ll just give you a stack of paper.”
A: “I don’t need a stack of paper, just one. I’ll copy it and get more.”
Me: “I give up. Any of you want to try to explain this to him?”
Husband, Mother in law, Father in law: “Huh-uh.”
And this child is gifted????
