massive dolt

My 2.5 year old daughter was minding her own business, when I decided that it was high time for her to brush up her cognitive skills. I looked around and I spotted a baby bottle cap lying near where she was sitting, so I decided to ask her if she could spot the partially camouflaged cap (it was a yellow cap lying on a floral patterned bed sheet). It was an attempt to gauge both her language comprehension and observation skill…

“Regine, the baby bottle cap is missing. Can you help daddy to look for it?”

She understood my question and then looked around for the cap, and easily spotted it. But instead of picking it up to give it to me, she was kind of giving me this look which I do not know how to describe. Thinking that she might have missed the cap, I asked her again about the cap…

“Regine, daddy still could not find the cap. Can you help to look around some more?”

After pausing for a while, she finally pointed at the cap with her little index finger and said this to me,


I’ve never felt so much like a massive dolt before…

    Kids learn from their observation and their surrounding.. either it’s from home or school. Poor dad… and she’s just 2.5 yrs old.

    lol i think you don’t need to worry about this in kids.. somehow their eyes are very sharp (as sharp as they will ever be at that age.. i think it slowly decreases with age though look how absentminded adults are!)
