While we were attending a Christmas party Sunday, my three year old son said he had a new trick to show me.
He had a spoon and was trying to balance it on his nose. I wasn't sure where he had seen the trick, but I was certain that he wouldn't be able to do it. Of course, I didn't discourage him.....I didn't tell him that I thought he wouldn't be able to do the trick. I went along and smiled while he rubbed the spoon on his chin and cheeks.
Much to my surprise, he had the trick mastered in just a few attempts.
Everyone at the Christmas party was amazed.
My wife told me that they had seen a kid's program on TV where someone was doing the spoon trick, but I don't know how he managed to do this on his own.
