Baby Helps Out
We have created a self service baby! Zoe, our 18 month old and youngest of three, has become self sufficient (almost!). Tonight, while we were reading bedtime stories, she took the diaper I had changed her out of before putting her jammies on and threw it away herself. This may not sound like much, but consider all that was involved. She knew the diaper was garbage, took the initiative to pick it up herself and take it over to the cabinet under the sink where our garbage can is located. Then, she had to unlock the child safety lock (it took her three times, but she did it all by herself) and deposit the diaper into the can. She then shut the cabinet door and came back to the family room to listen to some stories. The kid is brilliant!
