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!


  1. Jen, I just discovered your blog today, thanks to Christina. I have this horrible problem when I “find” a new blog. I feel the need to go back to the VERY FIRST POST and read them all!! 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)

  2. So speaking of the little gifted monsters… my 6 year old did a power point (yes power point ha ha) presentation on my computer the other day. Here’s on of her slides…
