Posting at SHINE

After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

an engineer maybe?

She's three. (and 3 months) We have not taught her to use a screwdriver (of course!). For me it was tricky to learn (when I was like 30!) . . . the whole "righty tighty lefty loosy thing, just to remember which way to turn it ya' know.

She was waiting for me to play trains with her. I noticed her getting the screwdriver out and trying to use it. it was cute - it was the wrong type of screwdriver but I didn't think there was any harm. I laughed out loud 15 minutes later when I realized she had taken the whole thing apart (14 screws!) and was carrying around parts of the roundhouse to that train set.

Does it seem a little unusual that she can do/did that? I'm thinkin' so. Maybe she is a bit bright?! I'm just callin' her "Our Little Engineer".

She takes after grandpa Clarke but he would say that she doesn't have the screwdriving muscle as she's a girl :)

Good for her. What a doll she is...when she's not being a minx to her mommy!
