Changing


Is it in their genes?
*
I don't remember teaching Tristan how a nail and hammer and piece of wood relate?
*
He must have gotten a couple glimpses while the menfolk were putting up the fences, but they were using screws and drills for the most part.
*
So how does Itty Bit know what to do with these?

Look closely, of course he has a screw and that determined expression means we're gonna end up with a hole in that board.
*
As a side note... I clearly remember that recess in Kindergarten often included scraps of wood, nails, hammers, and small saws.
*
(okay, pausing here for all you moms to collectively gasp)
*
Now that I'm a mom I am FLABBERGASTED that they put these kind of things into my five-year-old hands and said "go play". I made absolutely nothing recognizable, and likely created more injuries to classmates with the hammer.
*
Ever notice how very different the world has become since you were a child?

How sweet! And did he succeed in the great hole-making task?

It doesnt take them more than a few seconds to see something and try to immitate it. They love to immitate the big kids! Oh, I can so relate on the things we used to do that are now so unsafe. How did we ever survive??
