Today Maggie gave me this:
It's step by step instructions for making her a snack. The steps are numbered 1 - 4 (from right to left. Ha! Shows what she knows!), and detail how I should go about making macaroni.
Step 1 shows the macaroni on a plate.
Step 2 did show me that I should microwave the macaroni, but then Nina pointed out that macaroni is supposed to be boiled, not microwaved on the plate, so she scribbled that out and pictured the macaroni on the stove top underneath.
Step 3 shows the macaroni, cooked, on the table in the kitchen.
Step 4 shows Maggie seated at the table, salting the macaroni to taste.
She really does think I'm painfully stupid. You know, I didn't start dismissing all adults out of hand as painfully stupid until I was at least 8 or 9. I have no idea what this kid is going to be like when she's a teenager.
