How young is too young to challenge a baby's problem-solving skills?
At seven and a half months, Punkin is off to a great start.
I probably shouldn't encourage him to escape. He's already trying to climb out of the play
pen yard, inching higher and higher with each new day. He challenges himself.

They are our future explorers, inventors, athletes, innovators.
This baby's parents couldn't figure out how he was getting out of his crib,
especially with the mattress as low as it could go,
so his dad put a video camera on the dresser.
This is only 50 seconds. I guarantee his skills and perseverance will blow your mind.
What will he grow up to be? He's definitely going places!
Even if your baby's not a climber, they have other methods of outsmarting their parents.

Now we're enjoying our grandchildren. It's even harder to keep up at our age.

Do you have a parenting or grandparenting memory
or another story you'd like to share?
If you're not a parent, memories from your own childhood count, too!
Warning: I might feature your story in a future post.
(Names can be changed to protect the guilty!)
I'd like to thank all those who have shared their stories.
These posts wouldn't be the same without your input.
