Reid loves to play outside at daycare. When we arrive to take her home, sometimes she runs away or she comes running for a kiss and then zooms away with a giggle. Last night, Ken sat on a bench while Reid played until J, one of the teachers, instructed the children to each pick up 2 toys and take them to the shed. Reid leapt to her feet and said, “I can’t. I have to go home with my dad.” J laughed aloud and Ken told Reid to pick up 2 toys and put them away. He doesn’t fall for her scams.
It’s a bit surprising that Reid would try to weasel out of cleaning up given that she usually is keen to help the teachers. She’s a bit of a teacher’s pet. She gets that from me, I think.
