I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Max is stinking brilliant.

A smart cookie.

A bright bulb.

His ability to problem solve and improvise impress and astound me which is a little ironic because I feel at the same time a very strong sense of “Of course he did that.  Why wouldn’t he?’  Only sometimes (okay, maybe 50% of the time) does his ingenuity drive me batty.

But this photo is a testament to his brain at it’s best.  He made the fort with their bunks and it wasn’t staying put very well.  These clamps came with a contruction set my parents bought the boys last Christmas.  So he used them for this.  No whining or crying about how the blankets wouldn’t stay – he just figured it out.

Genius, I say.
