Tonight Jermaine was helping Amelle with her homework which consisted of filling out a questionnaire about herself, when I hear him call me, "Babe" (that's what he calls me) "What's Amelle's only bad habit?" I immediately answer, "picking her nose". Amelle whines, "No..". I respond, "Whining", Jermaine: "I already tried that one". Apparently she didn't want to expose her weaknesses to her teacher and classmates. She deliberates for a moment, then says, "Picking..." (I assume she's going with my first suggestion), "up butterflies" (I am wrong). Then, without looking up, she proceeds to write this down (without asking for help on the spelling). "Picking up butterflies?" I asked. She ingnores me and continues to write.
For kicks, here are the rest of her Q& A's:
- First memory: Wanted mommy
- Favorite Place: Beach
- Best Friend: Reagan
- Best Character Trait: Kindness
- Favorite Memory: Going to Ariel's School
- Interesting Fact: I like to sing
- Favorite Activity: Jump rope
- Only bad habit: Picking up butterflies
So, now I'm curious, how would you answer?
