My problem solving daughter.

While visiting Grandma's house, my brilliant daughter wanted to let the cats out of their room so she could visit with them too. Bingo, the more-balls-than-brains member of the cat herd, is her favorite. When she asked me if Bingo could come out, I told her, as I had before, that the cats don't like our dogs (that's why they're in their room in the first place).

She pauses a moment and says to me, "put the dogs outside."

This amazed me. Not only did she solve the problem put before her, but she did it by making a request she'd never made before. She's probably heard her parents say, "put the dogs outside," but I've never heard her say it to us.

She just keeps surprising me.
