Creative Problem Solving?

Going into parenthood, I always suspected that my child would one day outsmart me.

Never, ever would I have thought that day would come so soon.

While I was making baby food this morning, I heard whines and cries coming from the land of toys on the floor. Not knowing what could be wrong with Ember, I went to investigate. I sat down beside my distressed babe and scooped her up. Immediately, she stops crying, reaches over my shoulder, takes her soother off the coffee table and pops it in her mouth.

Apparently, that's all she wanted. Just a boost to reach her new favourite "toy".

My baby manipulated me! Worked me right over!!

My mum says she's creative problem solving. Interesting perspective.
