The Boy Rejects a Compliment

“Your writing has improved quite a bit in the last few weeks,” I said.

“No, it hasn’t,” he argued.

“Oh, yes it has,” I insisted.

And then he explained to me why I was so very, very wrong:

“No, Mom, it’s just that I’ve had to write a lot more for school and for homeschool and I got tired of using the same ten sentences over and over* so I started changing things around. That’s all.”

Well, okay, then.  You showed me. I am totally convinced, dude.   Nobody in their right mind could ever call that improvement, could they?



*not nearly as tired writing them as I was reading them, I promise.
