Isaac demonstrated some serious problem-solving skills at Safeway today. He really really really wanted to get the pretzels all by himself. And he did NOT want me to go with him.
Well, I know those pretzels are on a high shelf, so I waited on the other side of the store, expecting him to come back frustrated and asking for help. Instead, he galloped up to me minutes later with two boxes in hand. They were boxes of snack-sized pretzel bags, exactly the right brand and pretzel type, just different packaging. He explained that he'd had to get those because the big bags were up too high and he couldn't reach.
He was so pleased with himself, and serious about accomplishing his mission.
