    When your 5 year old, who has lived his five years in Honduras, is visiting Connecticut and travelling on a toll road and asks about the toll. When told what the coin being tossed in the basket is, there is a brief silence and he says, "Oh, so that is .... in Lempiras, right?" And he has made the conversion correctly.

    When your 6 yo wonders aloud if his elementary school principal will allow him to start an "elements of the periodic table" club so that all the other kids who love the periodic table can get together and just talk about the elements.

    When your visual-spatial learner preschooler decides to draw a map of directions for getting to preschool and back - and is actually pretty accurate.

    Ha! Let me know how that one works out for him! smile We got DS a periodic table shower curtain, and a deck of cards with all the elements.

    At the moment, he's building the periodic table of Minecraft, in Minecraft, because the one on his shirt doesn't have everything.

    DD5 would absolutely join that club - she's making me read "The Disappearing Spoon" (Kean) to her right now while she's too sick to do her uh, schoolwork.

    My DS6 would love to join a club like that, too. He has all of the Theodore Gray element books and cards, a poster of the periodic table, and we just bought the periodic table shower curtain, too. He's loved the elements since he was three and LOVES to discuss them and their properties.

    He recently discovered a Nova special about the elements on Netflix, and was overjoyed!

    When you restrict board games by saying that he can not play games that the minimum age is double his actual age. Then he gets killer bunnies a couple of months before his 6th birthday and you really wonder why it has a suggested age of 13+ so you have to change the rule.

    When your kid gets a 70 on a project that you know they can do. You ask what happened and they tell you the assignment was stupid so they only did the interesting parts.
