The Thought Processes of Kids Amaze Me
One of the things I love about being a parent is being able to watch my kids' personalities develop, because yes, they have similar traits and do some of the same things, but they are different people.
That being said, while they develop their own little quirks, they end up doing really weird/hilarious things along the way. One of the most interesting parts of that to me is watching their logic develop. Let me explain.
Last night I was in the kitchen making dinner and Easton (my 2 1/2-year-old) was in the living room playing with his model cars. Now mind you, I have an open concept house so I can clearly see him. One of the rules in our home is no toys on the couch, because I don't like it when they drop them on the floor. Well, rules are made to be broken, right? So Easton was on the couch playing with his cars and then all of a sudden it crashed onto the floor. All of a sudden, he froze, then jumped off the couch and took another car and crashed it into the car that had fallen -- as if he had been on the floor the whole time playing with his toys. My kid seriously tried to cover up the fact that he had toys on the couch and dropped them on the hardwood.
I couldn't even be mad because I was so impressed with the logic and the thought he put into his actions at the point of dropping his cars. Now, what baffles me is this is the same kid that I CANNOT get to go poop in the toilet. How is this even possible?
What crazy things have your little ones done that were so impressive you couldn't be mad?
