Malcolm has become quite the little problem-solver lately.
He has always enjoyed working on puzzles, but a couple of weekends ago, while spending the night with his grandparents, he mastered a (brand new) 24-piece puzzle in the span of an evening ...
All by himself.
I don't know if this is "normal" or whatever the case may be, but it makes my nerdy heart soar.
I have a kid that actually likes to use his brain and work through puzzles!
In addition to his puzzle-y love, is a love of letters (another nerdy score for me!) ... So, my husband made the genius move of combining the two when he purchased a cheap, foamy, floor puzzle at a discount store. We tucked it away for a while, but decided to use it as a "Job Well Done!" gift for the amazing transition that Malcolm has made (thus far) into sleeping in his "big boy" room and bed.
Needless to say, it's been a great big hit!
