As a stay-at-home mom who spends her days changing diapers, napping whenever possible, and regularly speaking in high-pitched, sing-songy baby talk, I sometimes think I can actually feel individual brain cells shrivel up and die. I’ll take intellectual stimulation wherever I can get it, including from this blog, my virtual time-out chair.

I was recently browsing through some old photos and discovered this from 2003. Eight years later, I’m still astonished by her skill at balancing these items:

It’s important to mention that the water bottle on the very bottom is completely empty! Yet, she somehow managed to balance two candles and a vase on top of it.

  1. Wow! That’s impressive! Especially since it looks like the things aren’t even centered on the water bottle!

  5. She is SO cute as a little girl. I love to see how little ones change and grow up. Do you ever just want to go back in time and see her like that again? I want to see my 8 year old as a 3 year old so badly it hurts somedays.

    Love the pic, and she is quite talented at a young age!!!
