Last night, Adelie was talking through the monitor, asking for various things, and we were letting her know that we weren't coming up and that she just needed to go to sleep. A little later, Adelie called, "I need to go potty." Zach went upstairs. When he got in her room, he said, "Adelie, do you really need to go potty?" Adelie responded, "Nope. I just want a drink." And there you have it. Here's a girl who has figured out how to get what she wants. Only two and a half years old, and she's already learning how to manipulate the system. And here we are, 30-something years in and getting duped by a 2 year old.
Is this the face of a master-mind?
