I’ve mentioned Henry’s love of jigsaw puzzles before. One of the struggles we’ve had has been to convince him to flip the pieces right-side-up first. He’ll complain that he can’t find a certain piece while most of the puzzle is upside down. “They’re much easier to find,” we tell him, “if you flip all the pieces over first.”
As if to prove us wrong, the other day, Henry put together a puzzle completely upside down (the puzzle pieces, not him). It wasn’t a big one (30 pieces or so), but still. Touché.
