One of THOSE Learners
Me to Lucy: Don't touch the stove, I turned on the wrong burner a few minutes ago and it is still hot.
Lucy: Which one? The big one?
Me: Yes, don't touch it, I don't want you to get burned.
Lucy: OUCH! That IS hot.
Me: Did you just touch the one I told you not too?
And then Lucy and I had a conversation about how sometimes she is just going to have to trust me when I tell her something isn't safe. She shouldn't try and learn it for herself and that I will let her do everything I can that I decide is safe for her and not coddle her.
Sigh. I don't know if she believed me.
