Me: (at kid table with Chromebook) Okay, this assignment is “Draw a picture about what you liked about the story and record talking about it.” Like the last four hundred videos we watched.
Delta: I don’t like anything.
Me: I know. But you have to stop submitting blank pages, the teacher doesn’t like it. Could you pretend? For mommy?
Delta: (fills in the page with a single color) It’s all black. I like black. (hits submit button)
Me: (sighs) That’s fine. Let me get some more coffee before the teacher emails me again.
