DTQ: At What Age Do You Attain Parenting Nirvana?


And by parenting nirvana, I meant, of course, that your kid could go to the fridge, get you a drink, and bring it back, and the fridge wouldn't be left wide open or dumped all over the floor?

The kid achieved this important developmental milestone a couple of months ago, but I can't help worrying she might be a little delayed. So far, the only scientific research I can find is about mixing drinks.

And some ice with that drink would be nice. Taking out the trash would be amazing.

We've used The Three Martini Playdate by Christie Mellor as a guide since before our daughter was born, but we don't yet trust her with the cocktail shaker.
