Most parents get really excited when their child learns something new, sometimes even more excited than the child is about it.

Thankfully I had my camera handy for this occasion because it was the most hilarious thing I had ever seen.
I outline her process and realization below.... tell me that last picture doesn't make you laugh out loud.
