The Makings of a Genius

For the first time in recorded history, Talia entertained herself:

This went on for 25 minutes, longer than any of her naps that day. Furthermore, she enjoyed this game for the next five days. As of this week, alas, she may have outgrown her childish ways.

About Sarah

10 years ago, I was a computer science student. 5 years ago, I taught kindergarten. 2 years ago, I trained teachers. Now, I'm a technical writer. I have thoughts about most of these things, but most likely I'll just write about neuroses and why I love Mr. Gatti's pizza. Which might be a neurosis.

    Wow, she is a genius! Amity hasn’t yet figured out that her movements can make other things move, as far as I can tell. She has started batting at toys with her hands but she always hits the one she isn’t looking at, so I can’t tell if she means to do it or not. :)

      Well, I have an alternate explanation for this “brilliance”, but I wanted to let people think the best first :)
      1) Talia kicks because that’s her most favorite thing to do.
      2) The chair rocks because that’s what kicking does, thereby swinging the turtle.
      3) Talia pauses her kicking because the swinging turtle distracts her.
      4) The turtle stops swinging because it’s not in a vacuum.
      5) Talia starts kicking again because she’s no longer distracted.

      I’d like to believe she was being purposeful in her kicking, but I don’t want anyone to think that I’m being overly partial because she’s my daughter :)
