The Goblin Child is entirely too smart for her own good. Too smart for our own good. We always know it. She constantly proves it.
We were sitting at the table finishing breakfast. She decided to get herself one of her yummy vitamin C pills. She was pushing down hard on the bottle making lots of work of unscrewing it. Her father asked why she didn’t just turn the lid?
She looked at him in that disdainful manner only done better by Coyote and teenagers. Because, she said, it says push down and turn!
Of course it did! We looked at the bottle and realized she was reading the instructions for opening the child proof lid. Reading and executing them beautifully.
