Children's views this week

We had some interesting discussions this week with Clare. Her duty is to empty the dishwasher. This can be difficult at times and often requires encouragement.
One evening she came into my offfice and announced to Lana and myself:
"I emptied the dishwasher.
I'm a good girl and I'm not lying.
I'm not lying because I saw it empty."
As it is Ariel's duty to fill the dishwasher, Clare then found Ariel and told her,
"Ariel, it's your turn. I emptied the dishwasher, I'm a good girl."
It's good to see that Clare has the self affirmation thing down pat!
(By the way, the photo of Rose is here because it is a funny shot of her trying to work her wand. The little blue gumboots go so well with the fairy dress.)
