    You know that you're parenting a gifted child when your 15yo is visibly enthusiastically enchanted to receive a hand-knitted... toy...


    rat,

    announces immediately (while fondly petting the toy) that the rat's name is


    Fibonacci,

    and says with delight that it will be the PERFECT thing for a dashboard "totem" for her first car. Oh, and can I make it a friend in a ruby-eyed-white phenotype, so that she can name that one 'Turing,' by any chance?

    {blink-blink} Asynchronous development, thy name is {DD name.}

    LOL I love that Howler. Fibonacci is a great name for a hand-knitted toy rat.

    When your college kid (STEM major with a side obsession about the French Revolution) texts to wish you a Happy Bastille Day!

    . . . when you have a container of mysterious blue liquid in the freezer, and a different container of mysterious green liquid in the fridge, and each child claims responsibility for only one sample.

    When your 2.8yo, still in diapers, is conducting a self-toilet training experiment in urinary output.

    DS' Method:
    1. Request 3oz of water. Ingest quickly. Urinate. Request diaper change.
    2. Repeat step 1 in full, requesting on each turn 3oz of: orange juice, cow milk, and breastfeeding.
    3. When breastfeeding, pop off the breast to "verify" you are getting 3oz. (Ha!)
    4. At the end of the experiment, ask which beverage yielded the highest fluid output.

    Not perfect, but pretty good for a 2 year old.
