If I sit quietly on the fire engine in the playground and leave AwesomeCloud to do as he will, he'll climb onto the fire engine all by himself.
Then, when he discovers he can do it himself, he'll stop asking for my help.
Likewise the couch.
I feel bad, though, because he's so short. For him to climb onto the seat of the couch is kind of like me climbing onto the top of the couch from behind it. And I'm short, too.
But I can do it, if I really try, and so can he.
