Carter Learns to Clap Watching Wheel of Fortune

We've been trying Carter how to clap for months. No matter what we tried he reverted to simply slapping his palms against his chest instead.

Saturday, after dinner we were wiped out from a long day of full-time parenting and snapped on the tv. We don't do it often but Jeopardy was on and Courtney and I rarely get to see a game show. It ended and we were getting ready for bath and bed time. Then Pat Sajak and Vanna White walk out.

The contestants start clapping as the wheel spins. Carter instantly starts clapping along...properly!

We're stunned. Yet he continues even lifting both hands over his head and clapping. I know everyone says TV is bad for kids but it taught my son how go clap. It can't be all bad.
