Have you ever looked at your child and said out loud in a completly baffled voice... " WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM?" I do this pretty often. My 2 year old has to be an alien.. as I write this post she is pulling every toy she has out of the play room into the kitchen (even the toy box which has to be 20 lbs) and stacking them on top of eachother. Attempting to make a ladder so that she can reach a jar of pennies we have on a shelf. She can't be human.. I love her but I am thinking about admitting her to Baylor University Science Lab as project since Baylor is close and I can visit her easily with a 25 minute drive. ( Don't start calling the authorities I am being sarcastic).. But Holy Crap... what is wrong with this child? LOL

I think she is a genius! After reading a few of your discussions, it seems like you get exhausted by your daughter. ^_^ How smart is she that she knows stacking up the toys might make her reach what she wants to? My son always does that, he always tries it hard to reach what he wants, and he will keep thinking of a solution. Don't you think they are smart and creative? Imagine if you have a kid that always doesn't do anything, but just sits down there like a nerd, would you worry? I would. That's why I always told my parents and parents-in-law, this is the kid I want him to be -- Be himself. But of course, she is putting herself in a dangerous position, and she might fall down and hurt herself. I guess as parents, we just need to watch out them carefully, and try to help them to "hold the ladder", or move away the jar so that they don't see it. This is what I always do.

Nope would not call the authorities at all. she sounds like a clever little child to me.
