I've been asking the boys every day what they've learned as a way to deal with perfectionism. If they said "Nothing," I'd ask, "You didn't even make a mistake and learn not to do it again?"
So tonight we went around the table, telling what we've learned. Chester had learned he likes clarinet better than oboe. Wolfie tried the old "I learned that I forgot to learn anything." Chester asked if I only meant things they learned at school or during school hours.
Me: Well, I'd like to know you learned something at school, otherwise why would I send you there?
Wolfie: Because we can get annoying?
Damn, he got me. LOL
