    Ooh, thank you -- just looked up Country Stack and must get this for DD7!


    Yes I know it's old news... but - what is this? An App or a game etc? I cannot find anything other than "stack the states" and I'd rather my child learn countries than US states... cause we don't live in the US laugh

    It is called Stack the Countries:

    That and Geo Puzzles are a great hit in our home.

    When your six year old asks the pediatrician questions about a vaccination including how long it will take his body to produce lymphocytes that can produce antibodies to fight this particular virus.

    when...you get the results of the psycho-educational evaluation back and do a major hand to forehead slap because you really should have figured it out without the testing. Now all the daily "drama" aka "over-excitability" makes total sense and we are just thankful she is as social as she is. But now what do we do?

    This just happened in my garden and my first thought was to come share it here in this thread laugh

    When your 5 year old can't remember and asks you for "the word that describes the process by which plants create their food using water and sun" and before you can answer your 2 year old provides the answer!!

    Yes! Replace "your 5 year old" with "you" and I've had this experience. smile

    Another variation on a theme...your 2 y/o asks you these sorts of questions in the style of Jeopardy without having seen Jeopardy.

    LOL@ Aquinas

    My kids frequently remind me of things I forget.

    And sometimes when I play a bit dumb after getting "those looks" and "those questions" from strangers in shops etc - and then my kids ruin the illusion of "normal" by reminding me.

    haha

    When DS was 7 months old he woke up one morning and said, "Daddy". He got lots of hugs and kisses. The very next morning he woke up and said, "Mommy" with a big grin on his face. For the next 4 months he called me "Daddy" with an even bigger grin on his face.

    ...when your child cries and cries because you accidentally took her to the children's show at the planetarium instead of the adult show. I think this is the definition of asynchronous.
