Science Smart Aleck

My daughter is such a smart aleck.  She was working on her science project, which included three tests of water with different temperatures (hot, room temp, and cold), and I told her she needed to label which is which.  She thought this was a terrible idea, because she already knew which was which!

I was insistent on teaching her good scientific technique, though, so I told her she had to label them anyway. (The voice of Adam from Mythbusters is always in my head when I'm sciencing.)

I saw Reese cutting out some paper with a scowl on her face after suggesting sticky notes, but being informed that they "flip up" and are therefore impossible to use.

 But later I went to check on the project only to find zero labels, I called out to Reese:  "I thought I asked you to label your experiments!"
"I did!" She called back.

I checked 350 degrees around the tests, and even scanned the rest of the counter to make sure I wasn't missing something.  Nope.  "What are you talking about?!" I called to her again.  She came into the kitchen to show me.

Okay, Ms. Passive-Aggressive!
