Michaela's sitting on the couch next to the chair I'm sitting on. She's playing with a deck of flash cards that have letters on them. Asher is determined to get into them, but all he does is bend and mangle the cards.
So she starts thinking it would be fun to drop the cards on the floor, one by one. This, of course, would only make it easier for Ash to get into them. I catch her on the second or third card, and firmly reprimand her as her hand is hovering over the floor....
"Michaela, put the card BACK."
Slowly, but dutifully, she retracts her hand back to the safety of the couch.
Not 20 seconds after she does this, she picks up one of the letter cards and shows it to me....
(You may not know this about Michaela, but she's ALWAYS asking us "Why?")
IQ, Schmy-Q, this girl's SMART!
