Much as I’m enjoying these days with Ella, I’m a little worried that I’m working myself out of a job.
Exhibit A: With The Girl safely strapped into her swing, I turned away for a few seconds to start a pile of poopy clothes to soak. When I turned back, I noticed that the swing was swinging. “That’s funny,” I thought to myself, “I don’t even remember turning it on!” Then I noticed an almost imperceptible shimmy in her hips and shoulders. The kid was swinging all on her own!
Exhibit B: Later, at Trader Joe’s, she totally put her pacifier into her own mouth. (She’s almost done this previously, but usually pulls it back out after forgetting the all-important step of ‘letting go’.)
She’s a genius, I tell you!
