Teaching to put away your books

This morning, I planned to teach my 20-month old son to put away his pile of books on the bookshelf.

Things were going well as I was demonstrating how to do it.

He was simply amazed….. bewildered even that I could stand each book on their side and together side by side wit the spine label facing out. Each time, he naturally asked me in his basic toddler communication way “to do that trick again, daddy!”

Somehow, he tricked me into putting the rest of his books away in the end.

Sneaky kid.
