This Simple Puzzle Has Most People Stumped

It took me forever, but I got it eventually!

There are so many things we have to pay attention to as parents. It seems our focus is always on more than one thing and we’ve had to train our eyes to see everything that way. Our minds have gotten good at putting things into puzzle pieces and seeing how the big picture works. It’s a skill many moms and parents get better at the more kids they have and the more years under their parenting belts they have.

Keeping our mind active and healthy means sometimes a good stump puzzle is just what it needs. A brain teaser that makes you wonder what is going on. Doing that kind of thinking can keep those problem solving abilities sharp and right there well into older ages when we usually see the decline.

If you’re someone who loves puzzles, we’ve got one for you. This one has stumped people all over the internet. And it’s a good one, too. Looking at the pattern and trying to find the mistake means you have to use your eyes and pick out those often small things that are different or not quite right.

It took me a longer time than I thought it would to find the mistake and I’m happy I’m not alone in that.

This puzzle has numbers in order that looks to be between 1 and 16 and you’re supposed to find what’s wrong.

Can you see it? If you can — SHARE this and see if your friends can find it too. If you’re still stumped, don’t worry you’re not alone — click through to see the answer.
