William

[ #4168 ]
My son's an engineer. Jenine got the stroller out of the car today, and William said he wanted to get in it. "No, love, I have to put Raley in it and have you walk. I can't carry Raley and push you." Back and forth on this another time. "William, what am I supposed to do?" asks Jenine.

William looks into the back of the car. "Put Raley in the backpack and I'll go in the stroller" he says. Sure enough, the baby-carrying backpack is in the back of the car.

See, all the problem-solving abilities of an engineer.

Then again, maybe he's management. He ordered people around, made the worker work harder, and ended up with a cushy ride for himself.

    Children are destined to rebel against their parents, after all. Perhaps he's just getting an early start...
