Why I call him the Scientist

You know how every parent thinks their kids are the smartest kids alive? Well, of course they do! They all love their children and look at them through rose colored glasses. It's sweet really don't you think? But me, well, my child really IS a genius! I've got proof...

I was finishing up a major vacuum job in my son's room when Cutecumber decided to start fussing in her crib. I couldn't hear her over the vacuum so my sweet son fixed a bottle for her all on his own. (*I know she is almost 2 and still on the bottle, but don't let that fool you into thinking she isn't highly advanced as well. It's me holding her back. Totally.) Anyway, when I turned off the vacuum, my son was telling me about his wonderful deed (making sure he gets praised for his kindness..also pure genius) and I noticed she had a bottle that had been laying dirty in the sink. Uh oh!

Me: "Honey, did you get that bottle out of the dirty sink?"
Scientist: "Yes, but don't worry, I washed it."
Me: "Did you scrub it inside with the bottle cleaner?"
Scientist: "No, I couldnt find it. But I just poured a little rice down in there with some soap and water. Then I shook it up so it scrubbed the sides because my hand wouldn't fit in there."

Umm genius! I wonder what other bright and helpful things he will do while I run the vacuum in the kitchen to clean up all the spilled rice.....
