Ok. the boy’s going to be an engineer

The other day I’m called in to the bathroom where my almost 3yr old son points out something on the rug. Turns out it is a piece of hardened toothpaste. I begin digging at it with my fingernail.

“How about the nail clippies?” he asks.

Smart kid. I take the nail clippers (which are conveniently right on the edge of the bathroom sink, right in front of me), and clip out the offending gunk. “Great idea!” I tell my son. “High five!”

After delivering the necessary high five he says, just as nonchalantly, “You missed some.”
