Birdy has this “learn about how electrical circuits work!” toy, and she plays with it endlessly. I thought we had built every plan in the book that came with the game until she busted out this page yesterday:
And once we built it, I realized we had recreated the “pee alarm” that my parents used when I was very young, when the first symptoms of diabetes started to present themselves.
“Can we take this apart now and build a different one?” I asked her, the noise of the pee alarm making me feel like I was in first grade all over again.
“Sure, Mom. But why?”
I started to explain, and then realized some things are better left unsaid. (But clearly not unblogged.)
