Never underestimate brilliance

We’ve always known A was bright, and now J’s light is blinding us. Tonight at dinner:

J: Never…ever…never…ever…they rhyme! (big smile!)

Tom and I stare at each other with the look of “OhMyGod, another kid we can’t keep up with”…he’s 3 1/2! (Same kid who can count past the twenties, count objects into the twenties, can read some simple words, and can surf the internet with the best of them)

Tom: Yes, good job, J! Kiss your brain!

A few minutes later…

J: Mom stupid…Dad stupid…hey, they rhyme too!


And yesterday we found out that the school being built literally 50 yards behind my house is very likely going to be a gifted and talented focus school. Crap crap and more crap. Sigh…I love A’s school, but a GT school thisclose? AGH!

    I gotta ask. What’s wrong with a gifted and talented focus school being built that close?

    We don’t have those at all around here, so I’m in the dark completely.

    Cute…I am amazed at Sj’s computer skills. My mom bought her a Webkinz for V-Day and she had the shopping down in like 2 minutes. Scary, actually.

    G&T focus school, hmmm…

Sick, I know! So far, I’ve been thoroughy enjoying yours. I am putting it on my list of links so I can check it daily (and maybe finish all the old posts! haha)
