    Worried?

    My 5 year old just came down from his room and said that he was trying to figure out how he could rig up his hammock over his bed.

    Not sure, if I should be worried or if I should just sit back and watch....

    That's awesome, I think I would sit back and watch first and see how creative he is and then offer Hellas needed

    Kid's a negotiator, and a smart one.

    He knew if he asked to set up the hammock all by itself, you'd say no, so he thinks a bit and suggests it be hung over his bed.

    Its a talent and a gift, but try to steer him into being a Marriage or Family Counselor instead of Politician or Lawyer.

    Come to think of it he probably has been working up to having a hammock in his room. Last week, he complained that his bed was getting to be uncomfortable, when I went up to read him a bedtime story all of his books were under his fitted sheet.

    Definitely have a stinker on my hands.
