I spent some time watching an orangutan toddler last week. As I observed her, I was freshly impressed by how similar her behavior was to a human of the same developmental phase, and how readily her movements called to mind the bygone years when I was parenting a toddler.

They grow up fast. Before you know it, she’ll be attending high school and driving.
