    I just got DS 6's letter of acceptance from Mensa!

    The only other person I've mentioned it to is my husband. It's nice to have a place to take a moment to go woohoo! about stuff of this nature.

    Now I can get the discounted rate on the EPGY Program, if I decide that's the way to go.

    This is not really a brag, more of a goofy story.

    ... so then, DS (3, often read as younger) up and writes his name. In more than one alphabet. In front of a large and avidly watching crowd of under 6s and their parents.

    But it was ok, because we were the official "freaks" anyway.

    There was a pause, but no awkward looks, no awkward comments, nothing.

    Sometimes I wish I had a "freak" tatoo on my forehead smile
    DS1: Hon, you already finished your homework
    DS2: Quit it with the protesting already!

    My 13yo was complimented by her AP Literature teacher today for the observation that one could (and she did) posit that Hamlet is really the story of a Schizoid personality disorder's adventures in alternative reality... Spiegel im spiegel.

    The teacher was genuinely fascinated by the idea-- and complimented my DD on her animated and passionate development of the idea. Her view is that the entire play is really just Hamlet's fantastic, irrational, inner life, playing out. The play-within-a-play is merely Shakespeare's clue to us.

    I feel silly posting this, but it's a huge brag for me.

    DS, finally, at 6 years, is riding his bike without training wheels.

    This will resonate with the posters in the "light eaters" thread.

    DS16mo was just weighed today at the paediatrician's office and, for the first time in his life, is no longer below the 1st %ile of weight for height!!! *Insert happy dance*
